Revised ISO Standards and Upgrading of ECDIS

30/05/2017

​After the publication of IEC 61174 4th edition which includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:

          - updated references are provided to IHO publications and test methods are updated to IHO test data sets;

          - requirements have been added for display of radar and AIS information;

          - new interface requirements have been added for BNWAS, VDR, BAM, MSI, INS and route transfer;

          - a requirement for an anchor watch has been added;

          - additional test methods are specified for operation of ECDIS beyond the normal range between 85 degrees South latitude and 85 degrees North latitude.

 

in August 2015, The International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) ECDIS standards were accordingly updated. In order to allow more time for the transition, Sub-committee NCSR decided that existing version of the standard will be applicable until 31 August 2017.

 

According to MSC.1/Circ.1503; where an ECDIS is being used to meet the chart carriage requirements of SOLAS, it must be maintained so as to be compatible with the latest applicable International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) standards.

Several port states will also consider an upgrade as mandatory, and that lack of upgrading may be considered a deficiency during PSC inspections.

 

Thus owners/operators are advised to contact with manufacturer of ECDIS in due time to comply with upgraded standards by 1st September 2017. Compliance may be verified onboard by relevant authorities on the basis of the work report issued by manufacturer.

Preventive strategies for maritime security

17/02/2017

 

The importance of well-coordinated, risk-based preventive strategies to counter maritime security threats was highlighted by IMO's Chris Trelawny, Special Adviser on Maritime Security and Facilitation, during a debate at the United Nations Security Council (13 February). The UN body, which has the responsibility for maintenance of international peace and security, adopted a resolution urging international collaboration to protect critical infrastructure from terrorist attacks. Speaking during the open debate, Mr. Trelawny highlighted IMO's extensive programme of technical cooperation activities to assist Member States to develop capacity and capability to deter, prevent, detect and respond to security threats.

IMO has adopted a range of mandatory instruments which support the protection of critical infrastructure, including maritime security measures for ships and ports under the SOLAS Convention; the Facilitation Convention, which addresses the stay and departure of ships; and the suppression of unlawful acts (SUA) treaties. IMO has also developed a range of guidance, self-assessment tools and training materials for the protection of ports, ships and offshore installations. IMO's main focus is on preventive security through a continuous risk management process.

Sri Lanka Ratifies The ILO Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 (MLC, 2006

24/01/2017

Sri Lanka Ratifies The ILO Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 (MLC, 2006)

On 12 January 2016, the Government of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka deposited with the International Labour Office the instrument of ratification of the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 (MLC, 2006).

In depositing the instrument of ratification, Ambassador Aryasinha, the Permanent Representative of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka to the United Nations Office and other international organizations in Geneva, stated: "Sri Lanka is committed to the creation of new job opportunities in sustainable manner as envisaged in the Sustainable Development Agenda 2030 and particularly, in line with the Government's commitment to eradicate poverty and promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth, employment and decent work for all.

Guy Ryder, Director-General of the ILO stated that the ratification of Sri Lanka, located in a key position within the global liner shipping network, brings one more important player in the Asia Pacific region within the scope of the MLC, 2006 and proves once more that the Convention has sparked a new dynamic, as countries now realize that the MLC, 2006 unavoidably impacts on the manner in which they conduct maritime trade and that they have to align their laws and practice with Convention provisions. The ratification will allow Sri Lanka to improve labour conditions for over 22,000 seafarers and ensure that ships calling at its ports are inspected in compliance with the Convention requirements thereby promoting quality shipping and providing additional protection for seafarers transiting within its waters.

MARITIME LABOUR CONVENTION (MLC 2006) 2014 AMENDMENTS

16/01/2017

The 2014 amendments to the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC), 2006 which relate to financial security will enter into force on 18 January 2017.

Standard A2.5.2 – Financial Security This standard requires a financial security system to be provided to assist seafarers in the event of abandonment. The standard defines abandonment as:

1. when the shipowner fails to cover the cost of the seafarer's repatriation; or

2. when the shipowner has left the seafarer without the necessary maintenance and support; and

3. when the shipowner has otherwise unilaterally severed their ties with the seafarer, including failure to pay contractual wages for a period of at least two months.

Ships will have to carry a certificate or other documentary evidence of financial security on board, as issued by the financial security provider. New Appendix A2-1 will detail the information required to be on the certificate or other documentary evidence. Standard A4.2.1 – Shipowner's Liability This standard sets out the minimum requirements for a system of financial security that assures compensation in the event of a contractual claim (see the definition under Standard A4.2.2 below). Again, ships will be required to carry a certificate or other documentary evidence of financial security issued by the financial security provider. Standard A4.2.2 – Treatment of Contractual Claims This standard defines a 'contractual claim' as "any claim which relates to death or long-term disability of seafarers due to an occupational injury, illness or hazard as set out in national law, the seafarers' employment agreement or collective agreement." The standard also requires that effective means are in place to deal with and settle contractual claims for compensation. Appendices A4-1 and B4-1 Appendix A4-1 details the evidence of financial security that is required. Appendix B4-1 details a model receipt and release form, referred to in new Guideline B.4.2.2. Where there is more than one financial security provider for repatriation or shipowner's liability, documentary evidence from each provider shall be carried on board.

What the changes means

The 2014 amendments to the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC), 2006 which relate to financial security of seafarers repatriation (Reg 2.5), and claims for compensation in the event of a seafarer's death or long term disability due to an operational injury, illness or hazard (Reg 4.2) will enter into force on 18 January 2017.

A copy of 2014 MLC amendments is available at www.ilo.org (http://www.ilo.org/ilc/ILCSessions/103/reports/WCMS_248905/lang--en/index.htm).

As of 18 January 2017, each ship must carry on board a certificate or other documentary evidence of financial security to comply with these new provisions. These certificates or other documentary evidences should contain the information provided in new Appendix A2-1 and A4-1. Also company procedures and check lists are to be updated accordingly to avoid any deficiencies or detentions during the Port State Control inspections.

2014 amendments should not affect the validity of maritime labour certificates or declarations of maritime labour compliance already issued. Ship owners should amend the DMLC Part II when the relevant flag State has re-issued the DMLC part I which addresses the new MLC requirements. This should be done not later than the first MLC Periodical Inspection due after 18 January 2017. Resolution on the transitional measures relating to the entry into force of the amendments may be found on ILO web site (ILO Web Site Link).

Extension of Eunavfor Mandate is Necessary and Welcome to Counter Continuing Piracy Threat

08/12/2016

The International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) has welcomed the extension of EUNAVFOR Operation Atalanta, following a decision by the EU Council, which will continue to see military forces deployed for counter piracy operations in the Western Indian Ocean until December 2018.  

ICS Secretary General, Peter Hinchliffe said "The presence of military forces is an essential component of the package of government actions that has helped to suppress the activities of Somali pirates, in support of the protective measures that continue to be taken by the shipping industry.  Ship operators and seafarers will be very pleased that EUNAVFOR has announced its ongoing commitment to these vital counter piracy activities."

 "While other security concerns now draw the attention of the international community, it is a fact that the threat which Somali piracy presents to international trade is still extremely high, as the Secretary-General of the IMO has recently observed.  Alongside a strong military deterrent, it remains essential that ships maintain compliance with the industry's Best Management Practices to prevent a resurgence of hijacks and kidnappings by these violent criminal gangs.  The extension of the EUNAVFOR mandate will also play a critical role in achieving this."

ICS and it member national shipowner associations look forward to continuing their close co-operation with EUNAVFOR to help maintain the security of shipping and the movement of world trade along these vital sea lanes.
