International Code of Safety for Shipping in Polar Waters

As Arctic ice decreases International shipping increases

IMO is developing a draft mandatory International Code of safety for ships operating in polar waters (Polar Code), to cover the full range of design, construction, equipment, operational, training, search and rescue and environmental protection matters relevant to ships operating in the inhospitable waters surrounding the two poles. The work is being coordinated by the Subcommittee on Ship Design and Construction (SDC)  – formerly the Subcommittee on Ship Design and Equipment (DE). MarineLink
