Code of Practice


COP Code of Practice for a single use flexitank system

The Code of Practice, for a single use flexitank system, is published by the Container Owners Association. It forms part of the COA shipping line (carrier) risk assessment process that requires flexitank manufacturers to comply with the Code and ensure a safe and reliable flexitank system.

The Code of Practice might additionally be appropriate for use by flexitank operators, shippers (producers) and other entities.

The Code of Practice refers to a single-use flexitank up to 24,000 Litre capacity that is designed and installed in an ISO 20ft GP container.

Only COA member companies that meet the provisions of the COA Code of Practice are permitted to display the COA logo or otherwise indicate compliance with the Code.
