ISM Code A Practical Guide to the Legal and Insurance Implications

Page 1


Introduction and underlying principles

1.1 Introduction to the third edition

This book is not, and is not intended to be, a legal text book for lawyers. The primary purpose of this book is to provide a wide range of lay individuals engaged in the shipping and marine insurance industries as well as flag Administrations, Recognised Organisations (ROs), Port State Control Inspectors (PSCIs) and others involved in International Safety Management (ISM) Code implementation or monitoring with practical guidance on the potential legal implications and consequences of ISM Code compliance. However, it is hoped that the legal professional will also derive useful insight into some of the practical application of the Code and the potential legal consequences of non-compliance. The book should also provide a useful reference to the numerous, but potentially relevant, Conventions, resolutions, rules, regulations, guidelines and other documents which may need to be considered within the context of the legal implications of compliance with the requirements of the ISM Code.
