CSC plate — sea container

The load­ing capac­i­ty of sea con­tain­ers is doc­u­ment­ed via the so-called CSC accep­tance or its stick­er on the con­tain­er. The valid­i­ty of the badge is lim­it­ed, but can be extend­ed depend­ing on the con­di­tion of the con­tain­er and any nec­es­sary repairs.

A new ship­ping con­tain­er will be pro­vid­ed with a 5 years valid CSC badge after fab­ri­ca­tion. That depend­ing on how long the con­tain­ers are valid for sale or deliv­ery in the depots 4–5 years. If you wish the con­tain­er to expire, if it is mod­i­fied exter­nal­ly or struc­tural­ly, you may lose the CSC valid­i­ty of these containers.

CSC inspec­tion

In order to be able to extend a CSC badge, it is nec­es­sary to inspect approved test cen­ters / exam­in­ers. Although an inspec­tion can be car­ried out on-site, the inspec­tor must have free access to the con­tain­er (= emp­ty con­tain­er), as well as the oppor­tu­ni­ty to look at the con­tain­er from below (= rais­ing the con­tain­er by the cus­tomer with suit­able means). How­ev­er, should CSC exten­sion not be pos­si­ble with­out repair, it must be e.g. be repaired and re-test­ed in the con­tain­er ter­mi­nal BASEL.

In a suc­cess­ful test, the CSC badge is usu­al­ly extend­ed for about 1–2 years depend­ing on the age and con­di­tion of the container.



CSC Inspektion

In co-oper­a­­tion with our part­ners in the depots, we can have the con­di­tion of your con­tain­er inspect­ed, make any repairs or extend the CSC badge depend­ing on the con­di­tion of the container.
