The present official IMO publication is containing three basic and critically important regulatory instruments that are commonly used by the organization, directly dealing with the LSA, i.e. life-saving appliances. Those three instruments are the LSA Code, together with the Revised Recommendation of Testing of LSA, and, finally, the Code of Practice dealing with the prototype novel LSA.
The LSA Code was officially adopted during of the sixty-sixth session of the IMO MSC. The main objective of the document was to provide all participants of the shipping industry with the requirements that are applicable to the LSA commonly required y SOLAS Chapter III - this would typically include the personal LSA, for example lifebuoys and inflatable lifejackets, immersion/anti-exposure suits, various thermal protective aids, visual aids including pyrotechnics items, survival crafts including lifeboats, inflatable and rigid liferafts, rescue boats, various embarkation systems including MES, i.e. marine evacuation systems, linethrowers, general alarm and PA (public address) systems.
An absolutely must-have publication on board any vessel subject to compliance with the provisions that are outlined in the IMO SOLAS Convention. The crew members will have all required information related to all lifesaving appliances that they have or supposed to have on board their vessel.
The main content of the present regulatory document consists of two major parts. In the Part A mandatory general and special criteria for the intact stability applicable to various types of vessels have been provided. The Part B, in turn, contains recommendations for the certain vessel types, supplemented with the additional guidelines. In second part of the volume there are some recommended design criteria and guidance to preparing the ship's stability information (including the utilization of stability instruments), icing considerations, operational provisions against capsizing, determination of the ship's lightship parameters, and consideration for the weathertight/watertight integrity of the ship.
There are two annexes supplementing this publication and containing detailed guidance for the preparation and proper conduct of an inclining experiment, and useful recommendations for masters of fishing vessels on ensuring a ship's endurance in iced waters. In short, the Code is presenting the mandatory and recommendatory criteria together with the other measures to ensure the safe operation of the vessels and minimize the possible risks to the vessels, crew members and environment. This publication is featuring the complete update of the previous Code, influences on the intact stability, together with some useful explanatory notes plus other valuable technical info.
And here is the tenth official release of the popular and recognized guide to the vetting process that has already proven to be highly effective and really invaluable tool providing both crew members and the supporting staff working ashore, together with the oil majors and ship charterers with a better and more clear understanding of this process necessary to ensure that the vetting goes in a smooth and effective manner.
The Secretariat of the Intertanko organization receives numerous requests for the updated information on the requirements that would apply to the vessel inspection and vetting for oil/chemical companies, underwriters, insurers and other involved parties - serving as a good supplement to the info that pertains to the various PSC requirements.
The present volume was compiled with the contribution and help of the vetting departments of several oil companies, PSC inspectors and other representatives of the authorities, marine surveyors, who provided valuable information satisfying all concerns. The present volume is highly recommended by the Intertanko organization to put a copy of the present volume onboard each ship plus in every office ashore in order to assist the crews of the oil tankers plus the personnel who are working in the shore offices for due preparation for the vetting inspections...
