When it is proposed to carry a bulk liquid substance that has not been included in the code, the governments of the parties to the proposed transaction will conduct a preliminary assessment of the proposed transaction on the basis of the Schedule II/Reg project. 6.2 IMO sets and will agree on these guidelines. Once tripartite agreements have been notified to IMO, product evaluation agreements (or trade names) are issued in the form of MEPC.2/Circular.
