This publication has been recently released by the International Chamber of Shipping, whose principal function is declared to be representing views of the shipping industry in the various International Maritime Organization's committees as new maritime regulations are developed.

These conventions can come into force only once they have been taken forward for ratification by government officials. Only after that, the conventions can be implemented and enforces in practice.
