Dear Customers and Partners,
With respect to the instruction earlier, please find below a clarification of requirements of Brazilian National Law ANTAQ-NR29/2011:
For all dangerous cargo loading or discharging at Brazilian ports MSDS in Portuguese (or FISPQ - Ficha de Informação de Segurança para Produtos Químicos) is required;
For all dangerous cargo in transit (remaining on board) via Brazilian ports: MSDS is required, but English version is sufficient.
Please kindly note that MSDS must be valid (not expired) at the moment a vessel calls Brazilian port.
For additional information, please contact your local MSC office.
