FIATA Container Weighing Toolkit

FIATA Members' comprehensive guide to mandatory verification of container weights.

Monday 5th October 2015

An Initiative to provide all FIATA Members with a comprehensive guide to mandatory changes regarding the verification of container weights, due to be introduced in July 2016, was announced by the Working Group Sea Transport at the FIATA Multimodal Transport Institute held in September 2015.


The toolkit is a guidance document covering tile background to the changes and an overview of the new legislative requirements. There is a detailed analysis of various contractual scenarios when the forwarder transacts with shipping lines or with other parties, and it concludes with a 'next steps' section giving helpful advice to FIATA members on dealing with stakeholders in their own countries.

BIFA Members can download the FIATA SOLAS guidance from www.bifa.org/information/container-weighing-solas
