IMO sub-committee elects new vice-chairman
Claudia Grant, deputy director general of the Maritime Authority of Jamaica, has been elected as vice-chairman of the sub-committee on Implementation of IMO Instruments (III). The III brings together flag, port and coastal states to consider implementation issues, including the analysis of consolidated audit summary reports from the mandatory IMO member state Audit Scheme.
The sub-committee has a key role in casualty analysis and issuing lessons learnt from marine incidents. The sub-committee receives and analyses port state control data and keeps under review the procedures for port state control. Guidelines for survey and certification, including the survey guidelines under the Harmonised System of Survey and Certification, also come under the remit of this sub-committee.
