The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has issued both the International
Convention for Safe Containers (CSC) and the International Maritime Dangerous Goods
code (IMDG). Both of these are mandatory international regulations. IMO has recognized
that the CSC convention is not directly applicable for offshore containers that are handled in
the open seas and has issued circular MSC/Circ. 860 with the applicable guidelines. Containers
certified to DNV 2.7-1 are also certified to MSC/Circ. 860 and it is noted on their certificates.
However, be advised that DNV 2.7-1 containers are not required to be certified and plated CSC.
For a container to be CSC plated, a separate set of criteria and testing must be met.
Our containers are both DNV 2.7-1 and CSC certified.
Containers that are intended for ocean voyages on container ships are normally designed to
applicable parts of International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Containers that are
certified to CSC are in general also designed as ISO containers. Our containers are designed
and certified according to ISO as well.
