In response to the Costa Concordia incident, CLIA (Cruise Line Industry Association) has ordered a ‘Cruise Industry Operational Safety Review’ of their 26 member cruise lines.
Key components of the Review include:
- An internal review by CLIA members of their own operational safety practices and procedures concerning issues of navigation, evacuation, emergency training, and related practices and procedures.
- Consultation with independent external experts.
- Identification and sharing of industry best practices and policies, as well as possible recommendations to the IMO for substantive regulatory changes to further improve the industry’s operational safety.
- Collaboration with the IMO, governments and regulatory bodies to implement any necessary regulatory changes.
After the review the results will be shared with CLIA board members and recommendations will be made as necessary and on an on-going basis.
