Ship Type: Passenger ships which carry more than 36 passengers, constructed ≥01/01/2020.

Amendments to SOLAS II-2/13 to make evacuation analysis mandatory

Existing paragraph II-2/13.7.4 is deleted. New paragraphs II-2/ and II-2/ have been introduced which require escape routes to be evaluated to demonstrate that the ship can be evacuated in the required time. The evacuation simulation will be used to identify and eliminate congestion which may develop during abandonment and demonstrate that escape arrangements are sufficiently flexible to provide for the possibility that certain routes/areas may not be available as a result of a casualty.
