Tuesday, 07 February 2012 | 16:30
The International Maritime Organization (IMO) issues Resolution A.1049(27) regarding IMO mandatory inspection regime for tankers and bulk carriers which contains the approved text of the International Code on the Enhanced Programme of Inspections During Surveys for Bulk Carriers and Oil Tankers, 2011 (2011 ESP Code).
The 2011 ESP Code, which was previously a set of IMO Guidelines under resolution A.744(18), will become mandatory when the amendments to SOLAS XI-1/2 are adopted at the IMO's Maritime Safety Committee in May 2012.
