IMO to Adopt Passenger Ship Safety Amendments

IMO to Adopt Passenger Ship Safety Amendments
The International Maritime Organization (IMO) is set to adopt revised safety requirements to ensure newbuild passenger ships remain afloat after a major incident.

The revisions to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) chapter II-1, relating to subdivision and damage stability, follow a substantive review of SOLAS chapter II-1, focusing in particular on passenger ships.

The review has taken into account recommendations arising from the investigation into the 2012 Costa Concordia incident.

The revised requirements are among a set of amendments set for adoption by IMO’s Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) which meets from 7-16 June.

Also up for adoption is the latest set of amendments to the International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes Code (IMSBC Code). Other items on MSC’s agenda include goal-based standards, maritime security, including cyber security, and adoption of new and amended ships’ routeing measures.

The MSC will also consider proposals for IMO to begin a scoping exercise to determine how the safe, secure and environmentally sound operation of autonomous ships might be introduced into IMO instruments.
