The Union of Greek Ship Owners applauds MSC’s 101 decision on adopting an action plan for mandatory measures to enhance the safety of ships relating to the use of fuel oil, recommending as a matter of urgency governments to take action against oil fuel suppliers in confirmed cases of deliveries of fuel oil that does not comply with the minimum flashpoint as required by the SOLAS Convention.
During IMO’s Maritime Safety Committee (MSC), that took place between June 5 to 14, participants discussed on current issues related to safety and security of the shipping industry. The matters of discussion also focused on draft measures for safe mooring operations, as prepared by the SDC sub-committee based on proposals originally submitted by Denmark.
The Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) is meeting for its 101st session. Its agenda is including maritime autonomous surface ships, polar shipping, and goal-based standards among other agenda items. Numerous draft amendments will be adopted, regarding dangerous cargo, autonomous ships, polar shipping and fuel oil safety.
