The present publication has been worked out by the team of professionals and released by Lloyd's Register of Shipping, one of the world's leading classification societies with their ultimate declared purpose to provide all participants of today's shipping industry together with all interested readers in general with a brief overview of the amendments already made or proposed to be made to the existing statutory instruments and regulations, which are considered mandatory under international conventions and codes. It starts with four tables providing the data about the mandatory regulatory amendments that have already been adopted and are now entering into force, and likely regulatory amendments that are still in the phase of development and discussion and may be subject to further change prior to their adoption - and these tables cover both new and existing vessels. The text part of the document is divided in two major parts. The first part of the volume is dealing with the future IMO legislation that has already been adopted, while the second part of it has been mainly dedicated to the requirements of IMO currently being developed. A needful document for those who are really willing to be up-to-date with the very latest and proposed marine regulations thus recommended for familiarization.
