While the finalized evaluated products for which a ship is certified are included in the standard CoF product lists, only one product supplement is added to the CoF, which covers only this specific tripartenary product. The new tripartite list will contain all current trilateral products at the time of the exhibition, for which the vessel can be certified and the ship`s flag is a signatory state. DNV GL now offers a list of certificate-for-fitness products that contain all products that have not yet been officially evaluated by IMO, but which are still subject to what is called a tripartite agreement. This facilitates the certification process by listing all tricolor products on a single list, as opposed to a single product supplement. At the next opportunity, the operator should consider urgently requesting a tripartite list instead of an endorsement to certify the vessel for all products currently available. In particular, for ships that often request tripartenary addendums, usually package chemical tankers, the new product list is a better alternative than asking for an endorsement each time a tripartie product is destined to be transported. On the new list, the signatory states and tripartite expiration dates for each product are listed in addition to standard mentions such as the tanks in which the product can be transported, the footnotes and the MARPOL pollution category. This information is ready to provide chemical tanker owners and stakeholders with detailed explanations of tripartite agreements for each list in the circular, as many requests have recently been made by shipowners. The goal is to facilitate the certification process by placing all tripartite products on a single list and not on a single product supplement. While ship-certified products are included in the standard CoF product lists, only a product supplement is added to the CoF, which only covers this Tripartenary product.
The new tripartite list will contain all current trilateral products at the time of the exhibition, for which the ship can be certified and the flag is a signatory state.
