International Convention for Safe Containers

The International Maritime Organization, in conjunction with other parties, established the International Convention for Safe Containers (CSC) in 1972. This convention created several important provisions including uniform international safety regulations and a requirement for all shipping containers to display a CSC plate. The CSC plate contains a variety of information including weight capacity, stacking capabilities, dimensions, and date of manufacture.

What Does a CSC Survey Cover?

A CSC survey is conducted by a trained inspector and ensures that the container structurally meets the all of the standards listed on the CSC plate. It assures that each container meets all safety regulations and is able to be stacked on a ship for transport.
