CHEMICAL DATA GUIDE FOR BULK SHIPMENT BY WATER; INSTRUCTION
The U.S. Coast Guard is vitally concerned with safety at sea. In the interest of safety, the Coast Guard reviews all chemicals proposed for bulk shipment by water. All cargoes classified as dangerous are regulated. The number and variety of unconventional liquid cargoes being transported in bulk by water continues to steadily increase. It has become increasingly evident that a convenient reference guide listing properties and emergency procedures for bulk liquid cargoes was needed by Coast Guard personnel concerned with the various aspects of safe transportation (marine inspection, port safety and security, marine environmental response and rescue coordination) and by civilian personnel with similar safety interests. The result of these concerns was this Chemical Data Guide. The Chemical Data Guide was developed in the interest of safe water movement of bulk chemicals. Hopefully, by providing key chemical information in an easy to use form, the guide can help prevent or at least minimize the harmful effects of chemical accidents on the waterways.
