Infographic: Polar Code and Ship Safety

Infographic Polar Code and Ship Safety

This November the International Maritime Organization (IMO) adopted the International Code for Ships Operating in Polar Waters (Polar Code).

The Polar Code covers the full range of design, construction, equipment, operational, training, search and rescue and environmental protection matters relevant to ships operating in waters surrounding the two poles.

But just in case you are unsure what the Polar Code means to ship safety, the IMO has created this useful infographic to further clarify the effects of these new rules.
