ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
The
ICS
Tanker Safety Guide (Chemicals) is a consolidation of experience and bestoperating practice in the chemical tanker industry. Its production would not have beenpossible without the assistance of those individuals, companies and organisations thathave so generously given their time and expertise to ensure its accuracy in the interestsof the safe carriage of chemicals by sea.To refer to people by name is to run the risk of omission, and over the years of writing,rewriting and editing this third edition many individuals have played their part.However, special mention must be made of the dedicated members of the technicalworking group, who spent so many meetings and ruined so many weekends makingsure that the text was both accurate and pertinent — Jan Soleng (Chairman of thegroup) and Eddie Trotter of 
Stolt
Nielsen, Chris Clucas of Dorchester Maritime, DinoGigante formerly of Exxon Chemicals, Frank H gelid and
Bernhard
Stein of 
Odfjell,
Harald Nesse and the late Wim van den Born of Jo Tankers.A special debt of gratitude must also be recorded to the late
Alberto
Allievi, for manyyears Chairman of the ICS Chemical Carriers Sub-Committee. Indefatigable inpromoting safety in the chemical tanker industry, it is to him above all that this editionis dedicated.

FOREWORD TO
THE THIRD EDITION
The first edition of the
ICS
Tanker Safety Guide (Chemicals) was published in 1971 and
complemented the first
IMO
Code for the Construction and Equipment of Ships Carrying
Dangerous Chemicals in Bulk (Resolution
A.212(VII)).
It developed from a clear demand for
advice on safe operations at sea, and became the standard reference work on chemical tanker
operations.
This third edition of the Guide is the result of substantial revision and updating. It reflects the
continuing need for guidance on well-established chemical tanker practice, but also takes
account of more recent developments which have emerged in the chemical trades. Cautionsabout the increasing use of nitrogen supplied at high flow rates from the shore are a case in
point.
o
A new feature introduced in this edition is the environmental care aspects of chemical tanker
operations. Environmental responsibility is now recognised as one of the most important
considerations of any industrial undertaking. The International Convention for the Prevention
of Marine Pollution from Ships, universally known as MARPOL, is now so much a part of everyday life for seafarers that it is easy to forget that the chemical tanker regulations -
MARPOL Annex II - are a relatively recent addition to pollution control legislation. These
days the requirements of MARPOL are an integral part of chemical tanker operations, and theGuide explains the link between chemical handling practices and the MARPOL Annex II
requirements.
The second edition of this Guide consisted of four volumes, three of which contained chemical
data sheets. Today, however, chemical shippers are required to provide such data, and
electronic technology enables accurate cargo information to be made available promptly to
everyone in the transport chain. So whereas the number of chemicals being shipped, often
under trade names, has increased to a thousand or more, the need for the ship to maintain an
extensive reference library of data sheets is much reduced.It was therefore decided to omit data sheets from this third edition, allowing the operational
guidance to be consolidated into a single, comprehensive volume. A model data sheet has
s~~\
however been included, to encourage the presentation of data in a standard format. This isparticularly important with regard to emergency and first aid information, which needs to bereadily identifiable and in a common layout. When a ship is at sea or at a remote terminalexternal assistance may not be available, and easily accessible emergency advice is therefore
vital.
No Guide of this nature can ever be complete, however much care and effort has gone into its
preparation. Comments and suggestions for improvements to the Guide are therefore alwayswelcome, and should be addressed to:International Chamber of Shipping12 Carthusian StreetLondon EC1M 6EZ
