    CIP (Container Inspection Program):

    The Container Inspection Program (CIP) is intended to prevent any harm to life or damage to property and aims to protect marine environments by reducing the risk of accidents on hazardous substance carrying vessels by ensuring that imported hazardous materials that are transported in containers by sea observe the IMDG Code.


    • At the International Maritime Organization (IMO)'s 69th conference of the Maritime Safety Commission (MSC), the implementation of the CIP system was urged ('98.5).
    • The United States, Canada, and advanced European countries have been implementing the CIP system since 1992 and Japan since 1997.
    • In Korea, a pre-shipment inspection (by a dangerous goods inspector) of containers of dangerous goods for export is performed; however, imported dangerous goods containers are not inspected, which poses a threat to port safety.

    Relevant Provisions:

    International Conventions

    • Article 41 of the Ship Safety Act: Transportation of Dangerous Goods;
    • Article 213 of the Regulation for the Carriage and Storage of Dangerous Goods by Ships: Inspection of Dangerous Goods Containers;
    • Matters concerning the inspection of dangerous goods containers (Notified by the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries).

    Domestic Laws

    • Chapter 7 of SOLAS (International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea) Convention: Carriage of Dangerous Goods;
    • Appendix Ⅲ of MARPOL (International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships) Convention: Prevention of Contamination by Hazardous Substances Transported in the Form of Packaging at Sea;
    • International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG Code).

    Check Points:

    • Whether shipping documents correspond to the dangerous goods being transported;
    • Checking the safety approval plates (CSC Approval Plate) of containers;
    • Checking the state of containers for damage;
    • Checking the attachment and appropriateness of labels indicating danger;
    • Checking the approval and inspection status of dangerous goods containers;
    • Checking loading methods and lashing;
    • Ensuring separate loading between dangerous goods.

    Inspection Subjects and Locations:

    • Subjects: Inbound containers holding imported dangerous goods;
    • Locations: Container terminals, on-dock CY, off-dock CY, warehouses storing dangerous goods, and container vessels at the border (including piers).


    • Checking dangerous goods containers and completing a survey form for inspection;
    • Notifying inspection related organizations (shipping companies, stevedores, CY, and dangerous goods warehouses) and the customs office; carrying out inspections;
    • Completing a violations notice of dangerous goods containers for overhaul in the presence of concerned parties (if violations are detected);
    • Notifying concerned parties (shippers, recipients, and carriers).
