COA Code of Practice for Flexitanks

 

The Container Owners’ Association (COA) has been working on a Code of Practice for Flexitanks for the last three years. The first Code of Practice for Flexitanks was published in 2010. The objective of the code of practice is to provide flexitank manufacturers with clear guidelines on the strength and durability required for their products as well as providing shipping lines and customers with the confidence that the flexitanks they are using meet or exceed a commonly accepted standard.

The most recent revision of the Code of Practice for Flexitanks was published on 1 September 2011 with effect from 1 November 2011. The most recent revision is designed to harmonise the flexitank testing procedures at different testing locations. The Code of Practice for Flexitanks also provides guidance on contractual relationships for intermodal transport and what to do in the case of an incident.
