The International Maritime Organization (IMO) International Management Code for the Safe Operation of Ships and for Pollution Prevention (ISM code) was born out of a series of serious shipping accidents in the 1980s, caused by a combination of or human error on board and management failings on shore.
Over the past two decades, the ISM code has certainly made shipping safer and cleaner. However, Yves Vandenborn, Director of Loss Prevention, believes there is still scope to improve its effectiveness. He discusses some ways this could be done in an article for The Report published in December.
The article is available online.
