The cycle of
All metal, rigid plastic and composite IBCs must be inspected and tested before being put into service and then at regular intervals not exceeding two and a half years. BVT is approved by the Ministry responsible for the transport of dangerous goods to carry out inspections and tests (air-tightness) on all types of IBCs. Our experts are available to intervene on site.
If an industrial establishment (IBC manufacturer, user, repairer, rebuilder or lessor) wishes to carry out the periodic tests and inspections itself, BVT is also approved by the Ministry responsible for the transport of dangerous goods to assist you in this process.
Our experts visit the industrial sites concerned to carry out an initial inspection and then submit an application for authorisation to the Ministry responsible for the transport of dangerous goods (authorisation valid for 3 years), followed by periodic inspections to apply for the renewal of this authorisation.

Resistance to internal pressure
The IBC must withstand the internal pressure experienced by the products and materials it contains.

The transport conditions and the shocks or possible falls during the journey must not exceed the strength of the IBC.
Resistance to substances

The IBC must be lockable and must not open as a result of a fall or other risk incurred during transport.
In order to be convenient, IBCs intended to be stacked on top of each other must be stackable.
