slide2

Convention on Facilitation of

International Maritime Traffic, 1965

Adoption: 9 April 1965Entry into force: 5 March 1967

slide4

Traditionally, large numbers of documents are required by

----customs,

----immigration,

---- health and

---- other public authorities pertaining to

----a ship,

----its crew and passengers,

----baggage,

---cargo and

----mail.

slide5

This is partly because of the international nature of shipping:

countries developed customs, immigration and other standards independently of each other and a ship visiting several countries during the course of a voyage could expect to be presented with numerous forms to fill in, often asking for exactly the same information but in a slightly different way.

slide6

By the early 1960s the maritime nations had decided that the situation could not be allowed to deteriorate further. International action was called for and to achieve it Governments turned to IMO, which had held its first meeting in 1959.

slide7

FAL convention - objectivesThe Convention's main objectives are:

1-to prevent unnecessary delays in maritime traffic,

2-to aid co-operation between Governments, and

3-to secure the highest practicable degree of uniformity in formalities and other procedures.

slide8

Standards and recommended practices

In its Annex, the Convention contains "Standards" and "Recommended Practices" on formalities, documentary requirements and procedures which should be applied on arrival, stay and departure to the ship itself, and to its crew, passengers, baggage and cargo.

slide9

Standards: internationally-agreed measures which are "necessary and practicable in order to facilitate international maritime traffic"

recommended practices as measures the application of which is "desirable".

slide10

The Convention provides that any Contracting Government which finds it impracticable to comply with any international standard, or deems it necessary to adopt differing regulations, must inform the Secretary-General of IMO of the "differences" between its own practices and the standards in question. The same procedure applies to new or amended standards.

slide11
