|1st International Forum on STS. PIRAEUS 18 MAY 2012|
The implementation of IMO MEPC 186 (59) after 1st April 2012.
IMO MEPC 186(59) of 2009 introduced rules on a statutory basis for STS Operations that will take place after 1st April 2011. Owners have now developed their policies and procedures in their STS Plans. Requested charterers' clearances from owners for participating vessels became a standard policy from most charterers during the last two years. OCIMF has issued proposed policies towards STS Service providers for Self assessment procedures. POAC's qualifications have been prescribed in Manual on Oil Pollution, Section I, prevention of pollution.
Will the above complicate the STS Operations for all stakeholders? What is Ship owner's liability and at what extend this liability may be covered? What is the associated Risk the ship owners take and how this could be mitigated?Do STS service providers phase any change in their operations?
The panel will endeavor to address those issues during the seminar.
Guests are welcome to put forward in advance their concerns for the panel through the discussion page.
