Implementation of amendment to Singapore Straits traffic separation scheme postponed

In our article in INTERTANKO Weekly NEWS No 50 of 10 December 2004 regarding the proposed anchorage in the Singapore Straits, we advised members that a revised addendum to COLREG.2/Circ 54 would be circulated.

COLREG.2/Circ.54-Add.2 has now been issued by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) confirming that the amendment to the traffic separation scheme (TSS) “In the Singapore Strait” will not be implemented until 1 July 2005.
