About:     ‘Shipping Regulations & Guidance’

The world of shipping becomes more regulated with each passing year, with an ever increasing number of regulatory items entering force, each with associated guidance. This periodical aims to brief the reader on such topics with clarity. It is not an instant news service but provides clear analysis of the issues facing shipping today.

Shipping Regulations and Guidance covers the latest updates to international regulations for the maritime industry. New regulations from the IMO are presented in a clear and concise format to help ship owners, managers and Masters to easily recognise and comply with the regulations that are relevant to them. It also provides a list of guidance issued by flag States, P&I Clubs and Class Societies so you have all the most up-to-date information on what is happening in the maritime industry. This is complemented by articles from industry professionals on current topics, which have included passenger ship safety, fatigue, container ship safety, seafarer training, ballast water management and hot work habitats. Other regular features include a guide to what’s happening at the IMO (including meeting dates and meeting summaries), a conference planner and the status of IMO conventions that have not yet entered into force.

There are many owners and operators who are aware of impending legislation, whether at an international or specific territorial level, but who have not committed the time to assessing how they, their business and their ships will respond. This periodical will keep up-to-date with current matters and those coming through over the next few years. Existing items will be covered for those who are trying to get a grip on topical matters in our industry.
