In addition to the above, a copy of the cargo stowage plan for the voyage should be kept with the contingency plan together with copies of the certificates of quality of the cargo or other documentation containing details of its basic properties. Bunker quantities and disposition details should also be kept with the plan.

Depending on the trades in which a particular ship is engaged, details of the characteristics of the oils likely to be carried and their fate under different climatic and sea conditions could also be usefully included in the contingency plan.
