Provides criteria for determining if damage to containers requires repair. Published jointly with the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS), the criteria apply both for on/off-hire and in-service inspections. The Guide was developed by a Joint Working Group of representatives from shipping lines and leasing companies worldwide. Based in part on the container testing project initiated in 1984 with HLA Engineers, Inc. in cooperation with the University of Texas at Arlington. Using finite element analysis, backed by physical tests, HLA engineers and IICL technical experts tested the capacity of a container to withstand damage. Includes Technical Bulletin G5 & 2 Pocket Editions of the Inspection Tables.
