RuleOutlook Live is an interactive online service to keep users informed and up-to-date with the regulatory environment affecting the maritime industry
RuleOutlook Live is a service which provides information on the regulatory environment affecting the maritime industry, including requirements from the IMO and IACS. Please note that this service replaces our previously produced document, Future IMO legislation.
RuleOutlook Live is a service which provides information on the regulatory environment affecting the maritime industry and allows you to produce reports containing comprehensive and timely information on future legislation emanating from such bodies as the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS).
The system also highlights the impact of proposed legislation on various sectors of the industry, such as the shipowners, shipbuilders and flag administrations, and will track relevant changes to legislation already in force.
The search function enables you to get the legislation that is ship specific (depending on the ship type, contract, keel laying, delivery dates, gross tonnage).
If you would like to see a list of future IMO legislation (adopted and under discussion) for all ship types please click here. Please note that this document does not include IACS requirements.
RuleOutlook Live consists of 3 main parts
Part 1 – Recently entered into force
This part includes requirements that have recently entered into force however they are still in transition period due to their application formulation, for example – the AFS Convention, which entered into force on 17 September 2008:
‘All new ship types built on or after the date of entry into force, and existing ships built before the date of entry into force, at the next scheduled dry docking held on or after the date of entry into force, but within 3 years of this date’.
Part 2 – Future legislation
This part includes requirements that have been adopted and have an entry into force date established by the IMO or IACS, but have not yet entered into force.
Part 3 – Proposed legislation
This part covers legislation that is under discussion and has not been adopted.
It is currently available to shipowners, shipbuilders, managers and flag administrations. Later on, once the necessary changes to the system have been completed it will be extended to designers, equipment manufactures and other marine bodies.
