Membership is open to shipping lines and nominated advisory organisations.
Membership so far comprises container carriers, but it can in the future be extended to the non-container sectors, such as bulker and ro-ro ship operators who could also see the benefit of CINS as a valuable risk management tool.Join CINS
There are four CINS Members meetings per year, when Members can review specific areas of common interest. These include:
• Best industry practice projects (for example, steel coils and high density guidelines)
• Evaluation of IMDG changes and practical effect on member lines.
• Supply chain management and root cause analysis.
• Mis-declared and un-declared dangerous goods
• Incorrect or poor packing
CINS members anticipate that, over time, the database will also reveal how widespread unsafe practices are in the industry. Information which can be used to press for better advice and training, as well as legislative changes.
The companies have worked together to share information on any cargo related incidents, near misses or accidents. See current CINS members.
The CINS Board comprises the five founding Members of the Organisation.
