description {



This publication contains the three most important IMO instruments dealing with life-saving appliances, namely the International Life-Saving Appliance (LSA) Code, the Revised Recommendation on Testing of Life-Saving Appliances and the Code of Practice for the Evaluation, Testing and Acceptance of Prototype Novel Life-Saving Appliances.

The International Life-Saving Appliance (LSA) Code was adopted by IMO#s Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) at its 66th session (June 1996) by resolution MSC.48(66). It provides international requirements for the life-saving appliances required by chapter III of the 1974 SOLAS Convention, including personal life-saving appliances, such as lifebuoys, lifejackets, immersion suits, anti-exposure suits and thermal protective aids; visual aids, such as parachute flares, hand flares and buoyant smoke signals; survival craft, such as life rafts and lifeboats; rescue boats; launching and embarkation appliances and marine evacuation systems line throwing appliances; and general alarm and public address systems.

The Code was made mandatory by resolution MSC.47(66) under SOLAS regulation III/3.10, whereby regulation III/34 determines that all life-saving appliances and arrangements shall comply with its requirements.

The Code entered into force on 1 July 1998 and has been amended in accordance with SOLAS Article VIII as follows:

1 by the May 2006 amendments, which were adopted by resolution MSC.207(81) and entered into force on 1 July 2010;
2 by the December 2006 amendments, which were adopted by resolution MSC.218(82) and entered into force on 1 July 2008;
3 by the 2008 amendments, which were adopted by resolution MSC.272(85) and entered into force on 1 July 2010.
The consolidated text of the LSA Code in the present publication incorporates the above three sets of amendments, including the two sets entering into force on 1 July 2010, since they were deemed to have been accepted in accordance with the SOLAS amendment procedures on 1 January 2010, and therefore automatically entered into force on 1 July 2010.

The Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC), at its thirty-third session, agreed that a new section V of the IMO Manual on Oil Pollution, dealing with administrative aspects and, in particular, with the roles and functions of entities which could be involved in an oil pollution emergency and its aftermath, should be developed. The present text is a revision of the first edition of the Manual, published in 1998, taking into account changes and new information on the topic since the original version.

This section of the Manual on Oil Pollution is intended to provide the reader, in particular on scene commanders, lead agencies and others involved in the management of oil pollution response, with an appreciation of the various interests involved in an oil pollution emergency and its aftermath, as well as a general review of the international legal regimes governing limitation of liability and compensation for oil pollution damage.

This section is not intended to provide an authorized or definitive commentary on the legal relationships between the various entities involved in an oil pollution emergency or an interpretation of relevant international conventions. The reference section includes sources of more comprehensive information on these subjects, and the reader is encouraged to make use of them if more detailed information is required.

The International Convention for Safe Containers (CSC), 1972, has two goals: to maintain a high level of safety in the transport and handling of containers by providing generally acceptable test procedures and strength requirements, and to facilitate the international transport of containers by providing uniform international safety regulations.

The Convention applies to the great majority of freight containers used internationally, except those designed specifically for carriage by air.
