Members of the Institution's IMO Committee attended and contributed to MSC 97, held from 21 - 25 Nov 2016.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Brad Groves of Australia who was re-elected for Chairman of MSC for 2017.

Amendments

Amendments were made to the following, and the majority were agreed:

1974 SOLAS
FSS Code
IGC Code
2011 ESP Code
2008 IS Code
1978 STCW convention
STCW Code

All the amendments were deemed to be accepted on 1 July 2019 and enter into force on 1 January 2020.

GBS Verification

Work was done on GBS verification guidelines but not completed. A revised timetable was agreed for the continuing work. No decision was made at this time on further financial arrangements for continuing audits.

Carriage of 12 or more industrial personnel

Interim recommendations on the carriage of 12 or more industrial personnel were finalised and will become a MSC Resolution. The definitions of industrial personnel agreed at this meeting will be used to develop a mandatory instrument.

SOLAS regulation II-1/6

The value of 'R' in SOLAS regulation II-1/6 was debated. A reduction in its value was proposed but received very little support. Accordingly nothing was done on this matter and it was referred to a future meeting.
