Shipping Industry Performance

  • Has a record of continuous improvement

  • But is not complacent !

    and is

  • “Striving for Zero”

    Zero fatalities, zero pollution, zero detentions

Shipping industry’s record ofcontinuous improvement

Q: How has this been achieved ?

A: A combination of effective

Regulation and Self-Regulation

Industry works to encourageeffective regulation

  • Developed at the global, international level, wherever appropriate (consistent with existing law)

  • Fit for purpose (provides solutions)

  • Properly considered (stakeholders involved)

  • Impact(s) fully assessed (economic and social)

  • If adopted, implemented uniformly and promptly

    By engaging with legislators, regulators, politicians and the media

  • Places of Refuge

A Solution Waiting to be Implemented

EU’s “Erika II” Package (Dec.2000) - requires Each Member State to Draw up Emergency Plans for Hosting Ships in Distress in Places of Refuge

Industry works to develop and promote self regulation

  • Adopting best practices

  • Setting in motion quality initiatives

  • Producing industry guidelines

  • Developing programmes, procedures, etc.

    By engaging with partners, legislators, regulators, politicians, media and public

Examples of Industry’s many Quality Initiatives

Tripartite dialogue: owners, builders and class:

  • Common structural rules

  • Coatings and coating performance standards

  • Goal Based Standards (Tiers IV & V)

  • Information sharing

  • Shipboard waste management

    Inter-Industry Group - (Chemical Tanker accidents):

  • Inert Gas for CT on presently exempted ships

  • Human Element Task Force

Protecting the environment

Human Element in Shipping

  • The best ship is not enough if industry to achieve its goals of continuous improvement - it needs the best staff

  • Most shipping incidents/accidents involve human error

  • INTERTANKO places great emphasis on the Human Element

  • Initiatives include new training programmes, provision of berths for cadets, etc.
