description {

The Code of Safe Practice for Cargo Stowage and Securing was adopted by the Assembly of IMO at its seventeenth regular session (November 1991) by resolution A.714(17). The Assembly recommended that Governments implement the Code at the earliest possible opportunity and requested the MSC to keep it under review and amend it as necessary. This has been done.

The first major changes to the Code were the amendments to MSC/Circ.664, adopted in December 1994, and MSC/Circ.691, adopted in May 1995, which were published as the 1994/1995 Amendments to the Code of Safe Practice for Cargo Stowage and Securing, introducing annex 13, which has been incorporated into this consolidated edition.

The present edition also includes amendments to annex 12, on safe stowage and securing of unit loads, issued as MSC/Circ.740 in June 1996, and amendments adopted by the MSC in May 2002, issued as MSC/Circ.1026, which saw significant changes in the contents of annex 13. Circular 1026 also includes an extension on the scope of application recommending all lashing assemblies to be fixed to strong or fixed points, a new table on friction coefficients and new texts on an advanced calculation method and an alternative method on balance of forces.

The book contains, as appendices, various texts which have been issued by the Organization and are considered relevant to cargo stowage and securing.

This User Guide has been developed to consolidate existing IMO maritime security-related material into an easily read companion guide to SOLAS chapter XI-2 and the ISPS Code in order to assist States in promoting maritime security through development of the requisite legal framework, associated administrative practices, procedures and the necessary material, technical and human resources.

It is intended both to assist SOLAS Contracting Governments in the implementation, verification, compliance with, and enforcement of, the provisions of SOLAS chapter XI-2 and the ISPS Code. It should also serve as an aid and reference for those engaged in delivering capacity-building activities in the field of maritime security.

With the entry into force, in 1998, of the 1994 amendments to SOLAS, 1974, which introduced a new chapter IX into the Convention, the ISM Code was made mandatory. The ISM Code's origins go back to the late 1980s, when there was mounting concern about poor management standards in shipping. Its current form was adopted by the Organization in 1993 and amended in 2000, 2004, 2005 and 2008.

This new edition of the ISM Code consolidates:

  • Amendments to the ISM Code from resolution MSC.104(73), which entered into force on 1 July 2002, from resolution MSC.179(79), which entered into force on 1 July 2006, from resolution MSC.195(80), which entered into force on 1 January 2009, and from resolution MSC.273(85), which enters into force on 1 July 2010
  • New guidelines on implementation of the ISM Code by Administrations, adopted in 2009
  • SOLAS chapter IX, as amended in 2000 and 2005
  • Guidelines for the operational implementation of the ISM Code by Companies
  • Guidance on undertaking the role of the designated person under the provisions of the ISM Code
  • Guidance on near-miss reporting.

This publication is an essential reference for maritime administrations, ship manufacturers, owners and operators, shipping companies, education institutes, engine and equipment manufacturers and others with interest in ensuring safety at sea and avoidance of damage to the environment.
