ANNEX VIU.K.DUTIES OF THE TERMINAL REPRESENTATIVE PRIOR TO AND DURING LOADING OR UNLOADING OPERATIONS(as referred to in Article 7(2)(d))

Prior to the start of and during loading or unloading operations the terminal representative shall:

1.

provide the master with the names and procedures for contacting the terminal personnel or shipper's agent who will have the responsibility for the loading or unloading operation and with whom the master will have contact.

2.

take all precautionary measures to avoid damage to the ship by the loading or unloading equipment and inform the master if damage occurs.

3.

ensure the ship is kept upright or, if a list is required for operational reasons, it shall be kept as small as possible.

4.

ensure the unloading of the port side closely matches that of the starboard side in the same hold to avoid twisting the ship.

5.

in the case of high density cargoes, or when the individual grab loads are large, alert the master that there may be high, localised impact loads on the ship's structure until the tank top is completely covered by cargo, especially when high free-fall drops are permitted and special care is taken at the start of the loading operation in each cargo holds.

6.

ensure that there is agreement between the master and the terminal representative at all stages and in relation to all aspects of the loading or unloading operations and that the master is advised on any change to the agreed loading rate, and at the completion of each pour of the weight loaded.

7.

maintain a record of the weight and disposition of the cargo loaded or unloaded and ensure that the weights in the holds do not deviate from the agreed loading or unloading plan.

8.

ensure that the cargo is trimmed, when loading or unloading, to the master's requirements.

9.

ensure that the quantities of cargo required to achieve the departure draft and trim shall allow for all cargo on the terminal's conveyor systems to be run off and empty on completion of a loading. For that purpose the terminal representative shall advise the master of the nominal tonnage contained on the terminal's conveyor system and any requirements for clearing the conveyor system on completion of the loading.

10.

in the case of unloading, give the master the maximum warning when it is intended to increase, or to reduce, the number of unloading heads used and advise the master when unloading is considered to be completed from each hold.

11.

ensure that no hot work is carried out on board or in the vicinity of the ship while the ship is alongside the berth, except with the permission of the master and in accordance with any requirements of the competent authority.
