Amendments to the LSA Code paragraph – to allow the use of hand-operated mechanisms for the launching of rescue boats

The amendments allow hand-operated mechanisms for launching rescue boats on cargo ships equipped with a rescue boat which is not one of the ship’s survival craft and has a mass of not more than 700 kg in the fully equipped condition, with an engine, but without the crew. It includes the means of embarkation for the crew and an additional requirement for means to bring the rescue boat against the ship’s side and holding it alongside so that persons can be safely embarked
