Transport guidelines for containers
- Containers must display a valid ISO identification code and be provided with a valid CSC plate with the due date of the next reinspection or with proof of registration in the ACEP safety approval programme. It is essential that registration with ACEP is recorded on or nearby the CSC plate.
- The top and bottom cornerfittings must be in a fully functional condition.
- CSC: The technical requirements for containers are laid down in the standards of the International Convention for Safe Containers (CSC). It is important that the container is marked with an appropriate plate and that the most recent reinspection date is not older than 30 months. However, the time period between the date of manufacture of the container and its first reinspection may be up to 5 years. If the container is subject to ACEP, then the inspection date indicated on the plate is irrelevant in respect of the transportation permit.
- ACEP: If the container is subject to the Approved Continuous Examination Program (ACEP), this means that owner of the container takes responsibility for the necessary checks, maintenance and repairs. The container displays an ACEP registration label. A reinspection date is not required on the CSC plate.
