BCH Code (Code for the Construction and Equipment of Ships Carrying Dangerous Chemicals in Bulk)

This edition also includes amendments which were adopted by the MEPC by resolution MEPC.41(29), which became effective on 3 February 2000; by resolution MEPC.56(33), which became effective on 1 July 1994; by resolution MEPC.70(38), which became effective on 1 July 1998; by resolution MEPC.80(43), which became effective on 1 July 2002 and by resolution MEPC.91(45), which also became effective on 1 July 2002. Chapters VI and VII of the BCH Code are now much shorter than in earlier editions because they refer the user to chapters 17 and 18 of the IBC Code.

Under the provisions of Annex II of the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, 1973, as modified by the Protocol of 1978 relating there to (MARPOL 73/78), chemical tankers constructed before 1 July 1986 must comply with this Code; those built on or after that date must comply with the International Code for the Construction and Equipment of Ships carrying Dangerous Chemicals in Bulk (IBC Code) for the purposes of MARPOL 73/78 and the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS 74).
