ABS Guidance on revisions to MARPOL Annex II and the IBC Code

Further to previous information provided in our Weekly NEWS on P&A Manual applications and templates available from classification societies (the latest in Weekly NEWS No. 41/2006), we are pleased to advise that ABS have also issued guidelines and templates.


ABS has prepared comprehensive guidance for owners to assist them in meeting the new regulations including an easy-to-follow template for the required Procedures and Arrangements Manual. ABS engineering offices around the world are also available to assist owners in understanding and applying the new standards and, where authorised by the relevant flag Administration, are able to review and approve the new P&A Manuals. For further information please refer to the links on the home page of the ABS website:www.eagle.org.
