All went smoothly at the recently held biennial meeting of the IMO Assembly.  The IMO's supreme governing body, on which all 157 member states have a seat, adopted a work programme for the next biennium with a strong emphasis on the role of people in safety and environmental protection. In addition, in a resolution on objectives for the first 10 years into the new millennium it directs all IMO committees to pursue a pro-active approach to regulation, using formal safety assessment to the extent feasible, and to avoid excessive regulation.  The importance of addressing safety and environmental issues by ship types was also unanimously endorsed. For specific issues highlighted in the resolution as requiring priority attention and which concern the tanker industry, link to December Tanker Safety Circular.
