18.104.22.168 CONDITION OF HOLDS AND PORTABLE BULKHEADSFor bulk cargoes
Portable bulkheads must be properly set up to avoid mixing different cargoes due to the cargoes running through the seams.
Special instructions need to be followed if foodstuffs are to be loaded and the requirements for a clean hold are far more stringent in such circumstances. In some cases, a lime wash may be required.
It is recommended that the Master obtains a clean hold certificate signed by a representative of the shipper prior to the loading of any bulk cargo.
