Until today, SOLAS regulations included requirements concerning the protection of ro-ro spaces for motor vehicles fuelled by gasoline. Through the implementation of MSC.365(93), the IMO defines new requirements for vehicle carriers carrying motor vehicles with hydrogen fuel and compressed natural gas fuel.
Dromon would like to clarify the applicability and requirements of damage control plan and booklet, especially for ships built before January 01, 2009.
The IMO has adopted at its 68th session the revised guidelines for the development of the inventory of hazardous materials through Resolution MEPC.269(68). The revised guidelines supersede the previous ones adopted by MEPC.197(62).
Following Dromon C14038, this circular contains the updated contact list to be included as an appendix to SOPEP and SMPEP shipboard pollution emergency plans.
