Merchant Marine Circular MMC-131 was revised by PANAMA MARITIME AUTHORITY on 1 August 2016. As a Full term ISSC for a Panama flagged ship is issued by the Administration (PMA), a short term ISSC is issued by the attending auditor upon the completion of initial ISPS audit so far.
This Circular sets out the requirements for inspection, testing and maintenance of compressed gascylinders, fire extinguishers and fire protection systems and appliances.This ClassNK Technical Information supersedes the previous ClassNK Technical Information No.TEC-0919.
According to the previous NOTE 01/2016, existing ships, the keels of which were laid or which are at a similar stage of construction before 1 January 2015, were required to apply Section 4.4, Section 7.1, Section 7.3, and Section 8 of Annex 14 by the first survey related to the Safety Construction Certificate on or after 1 January 2016.
This document is Volume 1 of the ABS CyberSafety™ series. It provides best practices for cybersecurity, as a foundational element of overall safety and security within and across the marine and offshore communities. The best practices are meant to provide insights for operations, maintenance and support of cyber-enabled systems.
This Guide presents criteria for compliance with ABS CyberSafety™ requirements. These requirements will be used by ABS in the cybersecurity reviews and surveys of information technology (IT) systems; operational technology (OT) control systems; and their system interfaces and software on ships, offshore assets and the management systems of the associated shoreside facilities.
The most recent adoptions to IMO legislation (SOLAS Reg. II-1/3-6) have established new requirements for means of access. Throughout the life of a vessel, this access enables overall and close-up inspections and material thickness measurements of the vessel’s structures. These means of access may be used by flag Administrations, classification societies, vessel personnel and others as necessary.
The purpose of these Guide is to establish minimum requirements for inspection of Rack and Pinion jacking gear at Special Periodical Survey of Hull for Self-Elevating Drilling Units for consistent application of the below noted Rule requirement.
This Guide is applicable to liquefied gas carriers that may for certain periods be used for storage service while they maintain their appropriate liquefied gas carrier classification. The Storage Service notation is optional and only applicable when the vessel’s propulsion machinery is also to be retained to AMS classification requirements.
The ABS Guide for Marine Health, Safety, Quality, Environmental and Energy Management or the ABS Guide for Marine Management Systems in short, has been developed with the objective of assisting shipowners, managers, and operators to improve the safety, environmental and energy performance in the management and operation of ships.
This Guide is intended to provide a uniform international standard for the verification and certification of maritime and offshore related education and training facilities and of the courses they provide that implement and maintain management systems in accordance with these requirements.
This Guide contains provisions for the certification of offshore access gangway systems installed aboard vessels, offshore floating units, and fixed offshore units.
An Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) is an aircraft with no pilot on board that is controlled remotely or able to fly autonomously based on a pre-defined flight route and/or dynamic automation systems. These Guidance Notes provide best practice recommendations on the use of UAVs to facilitate a safer, more effective, and efficient inspection.
