CARGO ALLIANCE OPPOSES REQUIREMENT THAT ALL FREIGHT CONTAINERS BE CERTIFIED “CLEAN” OF PESTS

On 28 July, Insurance Marine News reported that the Cargo Integrity Group (CIG) has said that it was “opposed to a new global requirement that all freight containers and their cargoes must be certified clean as a condition for ship loading because there is no risk-based evidence to support such a monumental change”.  The CIG claims that compliance and enforcement costs of such measures would be disproportionate to the benefits obtained, with scarce resources across the totality of the approximately 230 million containers moved internationally each year.
