Class Common Rules for tankers and bulkers - IACS written response

As previously reported (see Weekly NEWS No. 35 of 27 August 2004), the Round Table of international shipping associations (ICS, BIMCO, INTERCARGO, INTERTANKO) and OCIMF met with the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) on 20 September 2004 in London to discuss their memberships’ joint views on the Common Rules proposed by the Joint Tanker Project and Joint Bulk Carrier Project teams.

IACS’ written response is now available. Click here to view IACS’ comments inserted (in red) in the industry joint submission. Not all of the IACS comments are satisfactory to INTERTANKO and we will, in our submission to the Joint Tanker Project for 30 September, again highlight some of these aspects.
