ML Advisory 2016 – 30: MSDS Required for DG Shipments Bahrain (Imports & Exports)

Dear Valued Customer,

Please note we have been made aware that a MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) is required for all dangerous good shipments importing into, and exporting out of, Bahrain.

This is apparently not a new requirement; however, we are only now aware of the process. Note, we have not faced previous issues with shipments due to missing MSDS. To further ensure no issues with DG exports and align with the requirement, we will require all Shippers to provide a MSDS with their other hazardous documents effective immediately.

If, during the booking stage, we find a MSDS is missing, we will raise directly with OCCA SWA and the Shipper to send the document. Our internal Documentation SOP will be updated accordingly.

Please address any questions with your Maersk Line, Limited sales representative.

Thank you.
