IMO will conduct a definitive assessment of the products on the basis of their physical and toxicological properties, as presented by the producing country. The product is then valid for all countries without an expiration date and is included in the standard certificate-fitness list (CoF). The conditions of transport can be changed by the tripartite agreement. While the finalized evaluated products for which a ship is certified are included in the standard CoF product lists, only one product supplement is added to the CoF, which covers only this specific tripartenary product. The new tripartite list will contain all current trilateral products at the time of the exhibition, for which the vessel can be certified and the ship`s flag is a signatory state. Owners, senders and recipients have entered into conversations to decide where the remaining load should be unloaded. During these discussions, the owners commenced arbitration proceedings against shippers in connection with the travel charter and against recipients under the bill of lading. The interviews resulted in a written agreement between the owners, shippers and recipients of June 27 (the ”tripartite agreement”). At the next opportunity, the operator should consider urgently requesting a tripartite list instead of an endorsement to certify the vessel for all products currently available. The 102nd session of IMO`s Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) was held at a distance from 4 to 11 November.

On 2 May, the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) rejected the Tripartite Agreement (FMC Agreement 012475), which provides for the creation of a common container navigation service between three carriers.

The tripartite agreement was submitted to the Commission on 24 March 2017 by Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd (K Line), Mitsui O.S.K.

Lines (MOL) and Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK). These parties requested the power to exchange information in order to exchange information before the creation of a new business entity under next year`s agreement.

When new chemicals or product mixtures are proposed for mass sand, they are usually subject to a so-called tripartite agreement.
