Amendments to SOLAS regulation II-1/3-8 to cover mooring arrangements
Four new paragraphs will be added to the current regulation II-1/3-8n to address:
- Design requirements: New ships will have to be designed, and their mooring equipment (including ropes/wires) selected to ensure occupational safety and safe mooring of ships. Ship specific information will need to be included in the Towing and Mooring Arrangement Plan. Approval of the plan by the flag Administration is not required.
- Inspection and maintenance: For all ships, regardless of size and date of construction, mooring equipment including lines will be subject to inspection and maintenance requirements.
Three sets of supporting guidance covering design, maintenance and the strength of mooring equipment have also been produced.
