IACS Technical Structure and updates on their web site

The International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) issued this week a Work Programme containing the IACS Technical Structure, the revised modus operandi of its four Panels (Hull Panel, Machinery Panel, Statutory Panel, Survey Panel) with links to their respective work programmes, and an explanation of the various IACS Working Groups. Click here to view. 

The web site (http://www.iacs.org.uk) also contains new information such as direct links to the IACS Common Structural Rules and data on IACS classed ships (transfer of class, class suspension and withdrawal of class, ISM and ISPS certification status). Those visiting the IACS web will also notice a new draft of the Unified Regulations on Hull Survey for New Construction included for external review with comments invited before 31 March 2006
