Some modern container ships are larger than most of the existing fleet, whose experience has been used as the basis of classification rules and requirements. It is therefore reasonable to question whether existing requirements are appropriate for them. One such area that has been questioned is the requirements for anchoring equipment. It has been suggested that the high stacks of above-deck containers may be inadequately represented in the existing requirements.

John Spouge ( DNV-GL) has produced a note on behalf of the Maritime Safety Committee, considering the adequacy of IACS requirements for anchoring of large container ships.
