This document regroups all data required while loading in a European Special Fluids site, and has been updated on 2016, January.
It is henceforth the reference for all rules to be applied by professional transporters, and is designed to be as clear and exhaustive as possible. If however an additional clarification is required, the user should contact the TOTAL FLUIDES Piloting Department:
In case of emergency the site concerned should be contacted directly.
Any inaccuracies or proposed changes should be reported to the above mentioned contact ASAP.
This book DOES NOT supersede to any official rule in force on these sites, neither with regard to TOTAL FLUIDES Quality documents nor in relation to any national or European law.
Usual documentary controls are not specified.
Knowledge and application of all rules remains under the responsibility of the entity chartering transportation, though the possibility to delegate or share this responsibility with the carrier is maintained.
The carrier shall be solely responsible for safety of goods it is in charge with.
All questions and requests for information related to the loading of Special Fluid products must be addressed to the Total Fluides Sales assistants at La Défense, Paris.
All new rules (except those concerning safety and security) indicated in future updates of this book must be applied within 1 month from the update date.
One has to remember this book is designed for internal use, and should only be undisclosed when commercially justified and within the framework of existing business with a transporter; this book remains the property of TOTAL FLUIDES at all times.
