During the 2020 SAFETY4SEA London Forum, Capt. Mark Bull, Principal, Trafalgar Navigation Limited, questioned if the ISM Code is failing, after more than 20 years since its implementation. Capt. Bull firstly provided a brief history of the ISM Code, as well as a description of the five main areas where he felt the Code has failed and went on to explain how such potential failures affect the crew. Since it was introduced; however, nobody has reviewed the Code to ensure its ongoing effectiveness, he concluded.
At SAFETY4SEA Conference, Mr. George A. Gaitas, Managing Partner, Gaitas, Kennedy & Chalos, P.C discussed about what traders in the US may encounter with respect to the ODME bypass criminal prosecutions. Mr. Gaitas predicted it is likely to be a significant change in the enforcement of MARPOL Annex I in US.
