IMO - International Maritime Organisation
The International Convention for Safe Containers (CSC) is facilitated by IMO, the International Maritime Organisation which is an agency of the United Nations. Released in 1972, the Convention for Safe Containers has two goals; one is to maintain a high level of safety of human life in the transport and handling of containers by providing generally acceptable test procedures and related strength requirements. The other is to facilitate the international transport of containers by providing uniform international safety regulations, equally applicable to all modes of surface transport. In this way, proliferation of divergent national safety regulations can be avoided.
