CRANE AND CARGO HANDLING EQUIPMENT EXPERTS
Shipboard Cargo Handling Gear
We have been approved by the USCG to inspect and test materials handling equipment aboard U.S. flagged ships, giving ship owners and operators peace of mind.
Offshore Material Handling Devices
In these times of increased offshore exploration, ICGB has federal approval to inspect and certify cranes aboard mobile offshore drilling units.
Cargo Securing Manual Approvals
ICGB provides approval of ship-board Cargo Securing Manuals based on IMO guidelines, and approval of road vehicle cargo container safety.
International Cargo Gear Bureau, Inc. (ICGB), is a not-for-profit membership organization that provides registration, inspection, certification, design evaluation, and consultation services for shipboard, offshore, and land-based materials handling equipment.
First established in 1954, ICGB has provided services for owners and operators of shipboard and shoreside cargo handling gear at ports in the New York metropolitan area and globally. Today we are one of two U.S. Coast Guard and Department of Labor approved cargo gear surveying companies. We are recognized by OSHA, ILO, IMO, and classification societies like Bureau Veritas to examine and load test material handling gear as well as to certify cargo securing manuals.
We operate worldwide through directly enrolled appointees, trained and experienced in inspecting any and all cargo handling gear.
