CDI has announced to continue the IMPCAS system (International Marine Packed Cargo Assessment System) for Tank Container Operators. The questionnaire remains unchanged, but the results will no longer be included in a database that is accessible for chemical customers.
As per June 1, 2022, the assessors will send the assessment report in pdf format to the Chemical Distribution Institute only. Chemical companies can request the report at the CDI which will issue after permission of the assessed company. Since the IMPCAS scheme is only a small scheme to CDI and the cost for maintaining the database system is considerable for the non profit organisation which CDI is, it was decided to change the process.
CDI will remain publishing a list of accredited assessors on the CDI-website. LOAC assessors will remain accredited.
