SOLAS Consolidated Edition 2009
- International Maritime Organization
SOLAS, the International Convention for the Safety of Live at Sea (SOLAS) is the most important international convention on maritime safety. It has proved essential in improving the safety of shipping.
This fully revised edition provides an easy reference to all SOLAS requirements applicable from 1 July 2009. For the first time shipping professionals can find the consolidated texts of the SOLAS Convention, its Protocols of 1978 and 1988 and all amendments in effect from that date, in one comprehensive guide.
The SOLAS Consolidated Edition 2009 is an essential reference for maritime administrations, ship manufacturers, owners and operators, shipping companies, education institutes and all others concerned with requirements of the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea.
This is a must have reference book for all industry professionals, containing a number of critical new SOLAS regulations, adopted after the last consolidated edition of the Convention was published. Of these, particular attention is drawn to regulation V/19-1 on long-range identification and tracking of ships (LRIT), regulation II-1/3-8 on mooring and towing equipment and regulation II-1/35-1 on bilge pumping arrangements. The SOLAS provisions for corrosion protection have been updated and expanded and the new requirements are incorporated in chapter II-1. Furthermore, chapter II-1 was comprehensively revised to include probabilistic requirements for subdivision and damage stability and now also has a new Part F concerning alternative designs and arrangements. The annex to the Convention regarding the SOLAS forms of certificates contains the fully revised safety certificates for nuclear passenger and cargo ships and the list of certificates and documents required to be carried on board ships, as revised, is also added.
The Convention is also one of the oldest of its kind: the first version was adopted in 1914 following the sinking of the Titanic with the loss of more than 1,500 lives. Since then there have been four more versions of SOLAS. The present version was adopted in 1974 and entered into force in 1980.
