The Cruise Line International Association (CLIA) announced Thursday that the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) Maritime Safety Committee incorporated a number of recommendations from the ongoing Cruise Industry Operational Safety Review in its meetings in London, May 16-25.
The committee focused attention on passenger ship safety and considered a number of recommendations developed by the Review.
The review was launched after the January sinking of Costa Concordia and focuses on shipboard procedures (training and navigation), best practices and policies, along with consulting with external experts on current procedures.
“CLIA commends the IMO, its Secretary-General, the Maritime Safety Committee and the 170 IMO member states around the world to their ongoing commitment to working with the industry to improve the safety of passengers and crew, which is the number one priority of CLIA members,” said Christine Duffy, president and ceo of CLIA.
Many of the items mentioned in the Cruise Industry Operational Safety Review were put into action after the meeting.
