description {

Port State control has become of ever-increasing importance in the field of maritime safety and marine pollution prevention and thus in the work of IMO over the past few years. Since the adoption in 1981 of Assembly resolution A.466(XII) on procedures for the control of ships, a number of relevant resolutions have been adopted.

The IMO Sub-Committee on Flag State Implementation, recognizing the need for a single comprehensive document, reviewed and amalgamated existing resolutions and documents. This resulted in the adoption, in 1995, of resolution A.787(19), Procedures for port State control.

The resolution provides basic guidance to Administrations on the conduct of inspections, in order to promote consistency in the conduct of inspections worldwide and harmonize the criteria for the application of control procedures. The General Procedural Guidelines for Port State Control Officers are of particular relevance.

Amendments were adopted by the Assembly in November 1999 by resolution A.882(21). This publication contains the consolidated text of resolution A.787(19), incorporating the amendments adopted by resolution A.882(21). It also includes updated information on contact addresses of responsible national authorities.

This publication contains the three most important IMO instruments dealing with life-saving appliances, namely the International Life-Saving Appliance (LSA) Code, the Revised Recommendation on Testing of Life-Saving Appliances and the Code of Practice for the Evaluation, Testing and Acceptance of Prototype Novel Life-Saving Appliances.

The International Life-Saving Appliance (LSA) Code was adopted by IMO#s Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) at its 66th session (June 1996) by resolution MSC.48(66). It provides international requirements for the life-saving appliances required by chapter III of the 1974 SOLAS Convention, including personal life-saving appliances, such as lifebuoys, lifejackets, immersion suits, anti-exposure suits and thermal protective aids; visual aids, such as parachute flares, hand flares and buoyant smoke signals; survival craft, such as life rafts and lifeboats; rescue boats; launching and embarkation appliances and marine evacuation systems line throwing appliances; and general alarm and public address systems.

The Code was made mandatory by resolution MSC.47(66) under SOLAS regulation III/3.10, whereby regulation III/34 determines that all life-saving appliances and arrangements shall comply with its requirements.

The Code entered into force on 1 July 1998 and has been amended in accordance with SOLAS Article VIII as follows:

1 by the May 2006 amendments, which were adopted by resolution MSC.207(81) and entered into force on 1 July 2010;
2 by the December 2006 amendments, which were adopted by resolution MSC.218(82) and entered into force on 1 July 2008;
3 by the 2008 amendments, which were adopted by resolution MSC.272(85) and entered into force on 1 July 2010.
The consolidated text of the LSA Code in the present publication incorporates the above three sets of amendments, including the two sets entering into force on 1 July 2010, since they were deemed to have been accepted in accordance with the SOLAS amendment procedures on 1 January 2010, and therefore automatically entered into force on 1 July 2010.
