Polar Code: Limitation Wording for the Polar Ship Certificate
Environmental conditions in polar regions vary significantly based on location and season, as do the risks associated with operating there. In order to identify, from a regulatory perspective, the limitations that the ship has when operating in these conditions, the Polar Code requires operational limitations to be determined in the operational assessment and included on the Polar Ship Certificate.

Naval ship safety assurance Guidance for navies and shipbuilders
A naval ship must be capable and safe to operate. Navies have traditionally undertaken assurance of both these aspects using their own resources. However, with pressure on budgets and a loss of technical resource, achieving this assurance to a level that satisfies modern governance expectations has become a major challenge.
Model Garbage Management Plan
In order to reduce emissions from shipping, the European Union (EU) has introduced the shipping monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) regulation, which is designed to gather data on CO2 emissions based on ships’ fuel consumption.
Frequently asked questions Revised MARPOL Annex V
Most waste generated onboard a vessel can potentially harm the marine environment if discharged into the sea. The IMO’s MARPOL Convention regulates discharges of waste to sea from ships to minimise its negative impact in this regard.
Technology Qualification: Mitigating risk in innovation
Innovation is driven by new technologies that involve novel designs, concepts or applications. But whilst the upsides can be commercially and strategically critical, the introduction of novel technologies can be high-risk and is often outside the scope of existing rules, standards and industry practices.
