MSC 82 - Statutory damage stability verification

INTERTANKO submitted to MSC 82 its document MSC 8/18/4 regarding "Damage stability verification of oil, chemical and gas tankers". This was in response to, and in support of, the submission MSC 82/18/3 by the United Kingdom, Denmark, Germany, Norway and Sweden, which proposed means of correcting inadequacies in the methods used to verify compliance with damage stability requirements contained in the existing instruments on tank vessels.


Although scheduled to be discussed at MSC 82, due to the full agenda and protracted debates on other issues, this agenda item was not discussed and has been deferred to MSC 83, which will be held later in 2007.


Members will be kept advised in due course.
