The 8th session of IMO CCC  Sub-Commitee
  • PublishedSeptember 27, 2022

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) Sub-Committee on Carriage of Cargoes and Containers held its 8th session, a hybrid one (CCC8), at IMO HQ from Wednesday 14 through Friday 23 September 2022.

It agreed on the need to continue work on adapting the codes on the safety of ships using gas or low-flashpoint fuels, and on the construction and equipment of ships carrying liquefied gases in bulk to take into account the alternative fuels hydrogen and ammonia.

While guidelines for the use of liquefied petroleum gas have been finalised, the work to develop technical provisions for ammonia and hydrogen has begun and will hopefully be delivered to the International Maritime Organization next year.
