New attestation of unloading comes into force on 1 July 2024

As decided by the Conference of the Contracting Parties (CPC) in June 2023, a new attestation of unloading for tanker shipping will come into force on 1 July 2024. The unloading certificate documents the proper execution of the unloading procedure for cargo residues (Part B). In particular, it provides the various parties involved with proof of compliance with their obligations and the proper deposit of the waste. The revised attestation of unloading now also takes account of degassing and washing during the voyage.
It is recalled that the CDNI was supplemented by provisions on gaseous residues of liquid cargo and their treatment. This means that within the scope of the CDNI, there is a ban on venting for inland waterway vessels. As a reminder: during venting, vapours are released directly into the atmosphere from tankers. The amendment will enter into force on 1 October 2024. (The regulations on the ban on venting may differ in the Netherlands).
The application provision also requires some changes resulting from the revision of the unloading certificate. The instructions for completing the certificate of unloading have also been amended.
