NEW SOLAS REGULATION – ACCESS TO AND WITHIN SPACES IN THE CARGO AREA OF OIL TANKERS AND BULK CARRIERS

The IMO Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) has approved draft amendments to SOLAS Reg. II-1/12-2.

The amended regulation aims at improving the design of large bulk carriers and tankers to enable easier survey and inspection of the interior of their hulls.

The initial proposal was made by the Bahamas in March 2001 at the Design & Equipment Sub-Committee (DE) meeting. Due to the intervention of IACS and INTERTANKO it has been recognised that there is a need for technical provisions without which the implementation of these amendments would not be possible.

These technical provisions will be further discussed at the next DE Sub-Committee meeting in 2002. Please click here for a copy of the first draft of the technical provisions as initially worked out in March
