The impact of SOLAS on CODECO

I think that everybody is aware about SOLAS and the new container weight verification requirements that are going to be mandatory from the 1st of July (here for further information). 

The goal of this post is to show the impact of the SOLAS on CODECO D.00B.

All the below samples come from SMDG MIG that you can download here

Scenario #1: CODECO reporting Gate In message with (unverified) booking weight:

BGM+109+800255846+9+AB
(...)
EQD+CN+PONU4863849+4532:102:5+2+2+5'

LOC+11+ZACPT:139:6'
LOC+8+ZAJNB:139:6'
MEA+AAE+AET+KGM:10474'
(...)

Scenario #2: Container arrived at the gate with Transport equipment verified gross mass (weight) already announced to the terminal via e.g. COPARN (update) message:

BGM+109+800255846+9+AB'
(...)

LOC+11+ZACPT:139:6'
LOC+8+ZAJNB:139:6'
MEA+AAE+VGM+KGM:12373'
(...)

Scenario #3: Container was weighed at Gate In to ascertain Transport equipment verified gross mass (weight):

Scenario #4: Container arrived at the gate without a Transport equipment verified gross weight and was stacked in the yard as such. Container was weighed at the terminal to obtain the Transport equipment verified gross weight:

BGM+266+800255846+9+AB'

Finally, here are the codes assigned by UN/CEFACT as proposed/prototyped by SMDG

RFF 1153 - Reference code qualifier
  • VGR: Reference number identifying the documentation of a transport equipment gross mass (weight) verification;
  • VOR: Reference number identifying the order for obtaining a Verified Gross Mass (weight) of a packed transport equipment as per SOLAS Chapter VI, Regulation 2, paragraphs 4-6.
MEA 6313 - Measured attribute code
  • VGM: The gross mass (weight) of the transport equipment verified according to SOLAS Chapter VI, Regulation 2, paragraphs 4-6.  
NAD 3035 - Party function code qualifier
  • WPA: Weighing party.
DTM 2005 - Date or time or period function code qualifier
  • WAT: Date/Time when a gross mass (weight) of a packed container was obtained according to SOLAS chapter VI, regulation 2, paragraphs 4-6.
