Essential reading for cargo inspectors and all those responsible for, and involved in, the custody transfer of petroleum product cargoes.
This new document provides systematic cargo measurement procedures for use primarily by cargo inspectors and recommended procedures directed at minimising product contamination. It describes the detailed procedures which inspectors are required to follow and provides references to analytical test methods and calculations.
Reference is made to alternative methods since the procedures recognise that within the industry opinions may vary regarding the use of test methods, especially where different methods may be specified by parties and contractors.
The document covers all aspects of cargo inspection including tank suitability inspection, cargo measurement, sampling, laboratory analysis and testing and other superintending activities, as required by the inspector's principals. It also considers the purpose of a cargo survey and the responsibilities of cargo inspectors, with a special emphasis on the importance of safety.
