Although there are recommended methods, the ultimate responsibility for properly securing cargo inside a container (by blocking, bracing, and strapping) resides with the packer of the container. U.S. regulations make reference to dunnage as a method for securing cargo and defines it in 49 CFR 176.2 as ‘‘lumber of not less than 25 mm (0.98 inch) commercial thickness or equivalent material laid over or against structures such as tank tops, decks, bulkheads, frames, plating, or ladders, or used for filling voids or fitting around cargo, to prevent damage during transportation.’’ However, there is no reference made to flexible strapping systems. The Department of Transportation (DOT) has issued exemptions to 49 CFR 176.76(a)(4), allowing the use of fabric restraint dunnage systems to secure certain hazardous materials, when installed as specified by the manufacturer’s instructions. There are a variety of options for developing a standard. One option is to request that the UN ECE, ILO, and IMO consider incorporating flexible strapping systems into their Guidelines. Another option is to have the International Standards Organization (ISO) develop testing and performance requirements. The U.S. could also create domestic regulations for incorporation into 49 CFR part 176. The final option is to continue operations as they currently exist, allowing the packer to determine the best method of securing cargo without a standardized approval or certification process. The Coast Guard invites comments on the following topics: • The need for a new approval process or certification standard for cargo securing systems. • Information on currently used standards for the approval and use of cargo securing systems. • Methods for ensuring or verifying that securing systems adequately secure cargo without damaging the container or cargo. • Existing test methods for securing systems. • Materials used for securing cargo within the container (e.g. wood, plastic, bags, web, wire, chain, etc.). • Allowances for movement of cargo within the container when securing systems are used. • Information on cargo securing systems that are currently being used to secure cargo in containers, both domestically and internationally. Written comments and responses to the above topics will be added to the docket number for this notice (USCG– VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:14 Jan 07, 2010 Jkt 220001 2009–1079). The Coast Guard intends to review and analyze all comments received in order to develop a way forward for securing cargo in containers. This notice is issued under authority of 5 U.S.C. 552. Dated: December 29, 2009. J.G. Lantz, Director of Commercial Regulations and Standards.
