FIRE PLANS, THEIR COLOUR AND VETTING INSPECTIONS

We have received some enquiries regarding the use of colour on shipboard Fire Plans. There appears to be two lines of thinking among PSC and oil majors, one that Fire Plans should be coloured, the other just the contrary because there is no specific requirement for coloured plans. The Ship Inspection Vetting Committee has discussed this issue and concluded that Shipboard Fire Plans should be in colour. The Secretariat would nevertheless be very interested to hear from any member that has been penalised for having a black and white Fire Plan.
