Under the IMSBC Code, what cargo information must the shipper of a solid bulk cargo provide to the master or his representative?

“Appropriate information on the cargo sufficiently in advance of loading to enable the precautions which may be necessary for proper stowage and safe carriage of the cargo to be put into effect.” It must be confirmed in writing by “appropriate shipping documents” and must be accompanied by a declaration. (A model Form for Cargo Information for Solid Bulk Cargoes is included in the IMSBC Code.)

Whilst loading cotton bales, the chief mate reports that some of the bales are damp. What should the master do?

What are MHB, and does the IMSBC Code cover their carriage?
