    IMO in the main focuses on traditional shipping (more later)

    IMO writes the need for international standards to regulate shipping - which can be adopted and accepted by all.

    The first maritime treaties date back to the 19th century. Later, the Titanic disaster of 1912 spawned the first international safety of life at sea convention, now called SOLAS, still the most important treaty addressing maritime safety. SPS is an enhancement to SOLAS

    The Convention establishing the International Maritime Organization (IMO) was adopted in Geneva in 1948 and IMO first met in 1959.

IMO is a specialized agency of the United Nations with 168 Member States and three Associate Members, IMO is based in the United Kingdom with around 300 international staff.IMCA has observer status at IMO.

    Offshore shipping is not something that crops up at IMO very often.....

    .........too slowly, lowest common denominator? Or by consensus, lowest common acceptable standard?

    IMO adopts legislation - governments implement it

    Current hot topics - Goal based standards, air emissions, human element, ship recycling, anti-piracy

    But not commercial or social issues - essentially a technical organisation

    169 member governments

    Assisted by IGOs and NGOs

    75 NGOs including IMCA

    Membership criteria - international, considerable expertise, capability to make substantial contribution

    But observer status only assistance and advice but governments set the agenda

    NB. although the offshore industry may be a relatively small area of shipping as a whole, there are nonetheless about 2,500 vessels currently working in offshore construction. Under this Resolution of the SPS Code there were only about 20 to 25 of these vessels that were classed as Special Purpose Ships.
