NCB was incorporated as a non-profit organization in May 1952 with a mission of “Safety of Life and Cargo at Sea”. The Bureau was created to render assistance to the United States Coast Guard in discharging its responsibilities under the 1948 International Convention for Safety of Life at Sea* which addressed the carriage of Dangerous Goods and Grain cargos for the first time.

National Cargo Bureau conducts tens of thousands of marine surveys and inspections related to the transport of dangerous goods on behalf of vessel operators, marine terminals, insurers and shippers in support of its mission each year. This experience provides unique insight into today’s trends and the significant challenges faced by vessel operators when transporting dangerous goods.

Exis Technologies is part of the NCB Group.
