- Pollution Prevention
- Integrated Approach
- Class Descriptions
- Nominal Equivalency
Use IACS Requirements
- 1991 Germany proposes use of Class Rules for polar waters
“The harmonization of standards invites a holistic and integrated approach to safety and success.”
Harmonized Polar Rules will prepare the way for future Arctic shipping standards and practices.
What will Arctic Shipping look like in the future?
Reykjavik Declaration, 4th Ministerial (Nov 2004)
“ Request PAME to conduct a comprehensive Arctic marine shipping assessment as outlined in the AMSP under the guidance of Canada, Finland, and the United States as lead countries and in collaboration with the EPPR working group and other working groups of the Arctic Council and Permanent Participants as relevant.”
Shipping activity levels today (2004) and in
the future (2020 and 2050)
As well as,
The environmental, social, and economic impacts of shipping

“Times are changing and so too is our use of the marine environment …but…we adapt…we are a people that know how to survive…our past can attest to that!
“The way of life as our forefathers knew it is disappearing like the ice…it is our children who will be affected by these ‘water visitors’ the most.”
