New bill introduced for passenger vessel safety

US Congress representatives introduced the Cruise Passenger Protection Act to strengthen passenger safety on cruise ships. The CPPA would build on the passenger safety measures signed into law in the 2010 Cruise Vessel Security and Safety Act.

Mandatory requirements for passenger mustering on board

Amendments to SOLAS regulations III/19.2.2 and III/19.2.3 will enter into force on 1 January, 2015, and introduce mandatory requirements for passenger mustering and briefing before or on departure, for ships which are engaged in international voyages lasting more than 24 hours. The amendments were adopted by Resolution MSC.350(92).
