The “IMSBC Code & Supplement, 2016 Edition” will be released in July, followed by the French and Spanish versions later this year.
This new edition will not render obsolete the previous 2013 edition which will remain valid until 31 December 2016.
The IMSBC Code, adopted on 4 December 2008 by resolution MSC.268(85), entered into force on 1 January 2011, from which date it was made mandatory under the provisions of the SOLAS Convention. The Code was amended by resolution MSC.318(89), incorporating amendment 01-11, by resolution MSC.354(92), incorporating amendment 02-13, and most recently by resolution MSC.393(95), incorporating amendment 03-15, which may be applied from 1 January 2016 on a voluntary basis, anticipating its envisaged official entry into force on 1 January 2017.
