International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) 'Code of Practice for the Safe and Efficient Operation of Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs)' has been reviewed and updated.

International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) 'Code of Practice for the Safe and Efficient Operation of Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs)' has been reviewed and updated.

Designed for use by clients and contractors alike, the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) 'Code of Practice for the Safe and Efficient Operation of Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs)' has been reviewed and updated to reflect technological and operational developments, and includes additional guidance provided in particular on safe crewing levels for ROVs equipped with the growing range of tools packages in use within this fast-developing industry.

"This revised guidance updates and replaces the earlier versions published in 2003, 2001 and 1997," explains IMCA's Chief Executive, Hugh Williams. "It contains guidelines and recommendations for the maintenance of a high level of safety and efficiency across the industry. However, it does not attempt to replace the need for contractors themselves to maintain comprehensive operations manuals and procedures.

"The advice given in the code is intended to apply anywhere in the world, but it is recognised that some countries will have regulations that require different standards or practices to be followed. Local or national regulations always take precedence over this code. We hope that adoption of this code of practice and adherence to the guidance in it will lead to a safe and efficient industry that operates to common standards," he adds. "The code is a dynamic document and the advice given in it will change with the development of the industry. We intend to review it on a regular basis making necessary improvements. Anyone eager to suggest improvements should contact us at [email protected] e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it "

IMCA will shortly produce an updated 'Guidance on ROV operations' CD, which will include this updated Code, the revised IMCA R 002 - 'Entry level requirements and basic introductory course for remotely operated vehicle personnel' which was published earlier this year, and the rest of the current range of IMCA Remote Systems & ROV Division and core activity guidance, information notes and safety flashes.

Members and non-members alike can download the revised code free of charge from the IMCA website at www.imca-int.com (and from the members-only site). Further printed copies are available at £15 (members), £30 (non-members) plus 20% for delivery outside Europe. The CD will be available for members only at £25 each; or £75 for a set of five.
