SAFE CONTAINER PACT IS SIGNED INTO LAW BY PRESIDENT CARTER

President Carter has signed into a law (PL 95-208) a measure implementing the International Convention for Safe Containers. The convention sets uniform structural standards to assure that containers can be safely loaded and handled. Under the convention, all containers constructed after September 6, 1976, must meet the specified structural requirements. A period of five years from September 6, 1976, is given for existing containers to meet the standards. To minimize border inspection delays, the convention sets out procedures by which a container can be marked with a Safety Approval Plate, signifying that the container meets the standards of the convention.
