IMLA Attended the 91st Session of IMO Maritime Safety Committee

From 26th to 30th November 2012, a delegation headed by Dr. Prof. Jin Yongxing, Chair of IMLA attended the 91st Session of IMO Maritime Safety Committee at the IMO London Headquarters. The representatives from IMLA included Ass. Prof. Clive Cole, Secretary of IMLA and Ass. Prof. Ruan Wei from Shanghai Maritime University.

IMO MSC 91st Session agreed that rules to require passenger safety drills to take place prior to, or immediately upon, departure should be made mandatory, in the wake of the Costa Concordia incident. The MSC also adopted a number of amendments to the SOLAS, including a new mandatory requirement for new ships to be constructed to reduce on-board noise and to protect personnel from noise; and considered a range of other issues, including piracy and armed robbery against ships and other items submitted by the IMO sub-committees.

Before the meeting, IMLA had delivered to IMO MSC proposals on revisions of IMO Standard Marine Communication Phrases.
