    The Code for the Construction and Equipment of Ships Carrying Dangerous Chemicals in Bulk.

    This publication contains the Code for the Construction and Equipment of Ships Carrying Dangerous Chemicals in Bulk (BCH Code) and information related to that Code. The Code was originally adopted in 1971 and was altered by a series of amendments between 1972 and 1983 before an amended version was adopted by the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) in 1985 and by the Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) in 1986. There have been further amendments, the most recent of which were adopted by the MEPC by resolution MEPC.144(54) in March 2006 and by the MSC by resolution MSC.212(81) in May 2006. These came into force on 1 August 2007. This edition also includes amendments which were adopted by the MEPC by resolution MEPC.41(29), which became effective on 3 February 2000; by resolution MEPC.56(33), which became effective on 1 July 1994; by resolution MEPC.70(38), which became effective on 1 July 1998; by resolution MEPC.80(43), which became effective on 1 July 2002 and by resolution MEPC.91(45), which also became effective on 1 July 2002. Chapters VI and VII of the BCH Code are now much shorter than in earlier editions because they refer the user to chapters 17 and 18 of the IBC Code. Under the provisions of Annex II of the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, 1973, as modified by the Protocol of 1978 relating thereto (MARPOL 73/78), chemical tankers constructed before 1 July 1986 must comply with this Code; those built on or after that date must comply with the International Code for the Construction and Equipment of Ships Carrying Dangerous Chemicals in Bulk (IBC Code) for the purposes of MARPOL 73/78 and the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS 74).

    Accessing your IMO Digital Purchases

    From 1 May 2022, IMO moved to a new, hybrid version of the IMO Bookshelf, which enables browser-based access to IMO publications.

    Support for the existing Windows-based version of the IMO Bookshelf will continue until 30 June 2023, but no new purchases in this format can be made after 1 May 2022.

    Migration to the new system:

    • Migration can only take place once a customer has purchased an e-reader for the new IMO Bookshelf service from 1 May 2022.
    • Customers do not need to migrate their existing publications unless they choose to do so. Their Windows-based IMO Bookshelf products will remain available indefinitely, although technical support for the product will end in June 2023.
    • Users wishing to migrate must be using version 5.13 of the Windows-based IMO Bookshelf software.

    Users wishing to migrate their existing IMO publications to the new service, who has purchased an e-reader for the new IMO Bookshelf service from 1 May 2022, should contact us at books@ms-sc.org with the details of their IMO Virtual Publications account. We will arrange the migration with IMO.

    Access on multiple PCs/devices
    The new IMO Bookshelf is not limited to one device and can be accessed on any computer or tablet that can access the internet. Multiple licences are required for multiple concurrent users.

    Use online and offline
    The new IMO Bookshelf provides flexible access. Our digital titles can be viewed while connected to the internet and are downloaded to the browser’s cache for access offline, making it suitable for use even when you do not have a reliable internet connection.
