Neglecting above may cause damage to ships structure , hull and eventually overall stability may get effected.

Maximum allowable stack weights of tank top , Hatch covers and decks shall not be exceeded.

If any stacks are found to be exceeding the allowable stack weight , Inform authority and cargo stowage plan should be modified appropriately.
