ISO 6346 is an international standard established by the International Bureau of Containers for the coding, identification and marking of shipping containers that it sets.
Identification system for the container:
Master code (code BIC)
Equipment category identifier
The serial number of the container
Code size and type
Master code container - The code consists of the first three capital letters of the Latin alphabet, serves to designate the main owner or operator of the sea container. Such a code must be registered in International Bureau of containers Paris's unparalleled in the world.
Equipment category identifier - Equipment category identifier consists of one capital letter of the alphabet which is right at the source of the owner of container:
U - for all cargo containers
J - for removable equipment related to freight containers
Z - for trailers and chassis
Number of container - This is the 6-digit serial number of the container and is used to uniquely identify the container.
Check digit - A number that is the means to control the reliability of the owner code and serial number. The control number is relevant only to the code of the owner, the category ID and serial number of the equipment container.
Country code (optional) - Country code consists of two uppercase letters of the alphabet, as described in the standard ISO 3166. They point to the country in which the code, not the nationality of the owner or operator of the offshore container.
Operational tags - Internal tags are designed to transmit the requested information for transport containers or give a visual warning.
Operational labels include:
Weight of the container
Symbol for the container
Sign warning of electrical hazards
Container height higher than 2,6 m (8 feet 6 inches)
A security table attached to a container and its purpose.
Since the container is a vehicle for the transport of goods between states, it has not only standard dimensions, but also the necessary security for service personnel during transportation. This is achieved by its design and the material used and strength. In support of these facts, a container is attached to the BCF (Convention for Safe Containers), which is issued by the country's qualification and supervisory authority.
English is set as the language for filling in the table. Table dimensions - 200 * 100 mm. Made from corrosion-resistant material. Fastened to the left door of the container in its lower part. On the container doors themselves it is also additionally indicated: own weight, maximum weight gross in kilograms and pounds. The KBK plate serves as a guarantor of container safety.
The container is therefore considered to be safety certified for countries that have signed a CAC. The plate shows the following information:
The country that provided the approval and the number of the approval, as shown for example in the 1 line (the country that provided the approval must be indicated by the distinguishing sign used to indicate the country of registration of vehicles in international traffic);
Date (month and year) of manufacture;
The identification number of the container assigned by the manufacturer or for existing containers for which this number is unknown, the number assigned by the administration;
Maximum operating gross weight (kilograms and pounds);
Permissible weight on stacking with 1,8 g (kilograms and pounds), where g is the acceleration of gravity;
The magnitude of the load in the transverse test for rigidity (kilograms and pounds);
The end wall strength is indicated in the plate only if the end walls are designed for a load that is less or more than 0,4 from the maximum allowable payload, i.e. 0,4 P;
The strength of the side wall is indicated on the plate only if the side walls are designed for a load that is less or more than 0,6 from the maximum allowable payload, i.e. 0,6 P;
The date (month and year) of the first routine inspection of the new containers and the date (month and year) of the subsequent preventive examinations, if the plate is used for this purpose. The signatories of the CSC mutually recognize containers with signs certified by national qualification authorities. Volumes and methods of mandatory testing of containers are contained in the ISO standard, as well as in national standards (for example, GOST 20260 of the former USSR).
