Interim versions of amended regulations available in IMO-Vega online

The online version of IMO-Vega is extended with interim and consolidated versions of the regulations which were amended by MEPC 73 in October 2018 and by MSC 100 in December 2018.

Relevant for Design offices, shipyards, suppliers, owners/managers, flag states of all ship types. 

The IMO-Vega Database, developed by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and DNV GL, puts all the necessary information on safety and pollution prevention requirements applicable to ships.

IMO-Vega has been updated with PDF documents in which the latest amendments have been marked. These PDF files will be available until the next version of IMO-Vega is released in May 2019, when the PDF documents will be replaced by this regular update.

The regulations amended by this add-on include MARPOL Annex VI, STCW Code Part B and SPS Code for ships certified before 2008-05-13. The PDF files can be found under their respective portals in IMO-Vega (SPS Code under Other Codes).

Now, and despite the upheaval of the pandemic, some PSC regimes or single countries are coming back to performing almost the same number of inspections as before the pandemic. This PSC news provides an overview of the actual inspection activity in different PSC regimes, a situation which may change quickly.
