What are IMPCAS and what is the benefit to Industry?

Most disasters in the Supply Chain by Road, Rail or Maritime could be avoided.

The International Marine Packed Cargo Audit Schemes (IMPCAS) are designed to improve safety, security, compliance, and the quality of operations within the global marine packed cargo supply chain.

How did this launch come about?

Last year, the CDI’s General Manager (Captain Howard Snaith), was the Keynote Speaker at the RPMASA “Raising the bar in Supply Chain and Safety Compliance” event at the Durban Country Club in May 2016, resulting in an MoU and Capt. Terry Frith presenting the first IMPCAS Auditor Training Course in Africa. The first African-based IMPCAS Accredited Auditors are now available to audit local marine Logistics Service Providers to the Chemical and Maritime Sector.

What is the CDI?

The CDI – the Chemical Distribution Institute – was formed in 1994 by a concerned group of chemical manufacturers and shippers. Its aim was to provide standardised systems (meeting the current ISO 9001:2015 Standard and International Responsible Care Principles) for the Risk Assessment of marine logistics service providers. It was initially established for chemical and LPG tankers, and then expanded to include bulk liquid terminals.

The CDI later introduced its International Marine Packed Cargo Audit Scheme (IMPCAS) to provide audit reports on each category of logistics service provider, and to assist users to decide which service providers to use for their business. Read more: www.cdi.org.uk
