Adoption of amendments to mandatory instruments
The MSC 102 adopted amendments to the following IMO instruments:
SOLAS – Safety of Life at Sea
Watertight integrity: Amendments to SOLAS Chapter II-1 align the design criteria for watertight integrity in parts B-2 to B-4 with the probabilistic damage stability approach in parts B and B-1. The amendments address inter alia assumptions regarding progressive flooding, valves in the collision bulkhead and watertight doors.
The amendments will enter into force on 1 January 2024, with voluntary
early implementation of Regulation 12 on collision bulkhead valves.
Safe mooring operations: Amendments to SOLAS Chapter II-1/3-8 include new requirements on the design of mooring arrangements, the selection of mooring equipment including lines, and the regime for maintenance and inspection of mooring equipment including lines.
Maintenance and inspection requirements will be given retroactive application for all ships. See also
