Flexitank Quality List – FQL

The Flexitank Quality List provides information to COA Carriers (Shipping Lines) for use as may be required part of their risk assessment process.

Flexitank members that demonstrate conformance with the COA Code of Practice are awarded the COA Quality Conformance (see Table 1).

The COA Flexitank Code of Practice details requirements of flexitank manufacture, operation and the requirements of the quality conformance scheme.

Conformance with the quality scheme is demonstrated by the flexitank company undergoing independent audits and tests

The CQC is required for each manufacturing factory. Some companies operate more than one factory.

The CQC is required for each flexitank type. Some companies supply more than one type of flexitank.

The dates recorded on the FQL refer to the expiry date of the audit

The CQC is not issued in document form. Companies requiring a document should download the FQL.

A Manufacturer is defined as a company that manufactures flexitanks (Code of Practice COA V6-M) Some manufacturer’s also provide operations of their flexitanks

An Operator is a company, independent of the manufacturer, that supplies and or provides logistics services for flexitanks that have been manufactured by a holder of the CQC (COA Code Practice V6-O)

An operator meeting the requirements of Code of Practice V6-O, is required to supply only flexitanks manufactured by the company detailed in the column – “Flexitank Type”
