The Isle of Man Ship Registry is consulting on proposals to make new regulations to give effect to the latest version of SOLAS Chapter VI. The current Regulations applying SOLAS Chapter VI are the Merchant Shipping (Carriage of Cargoes) Regulations 2006, which will be revoked.
There have been a number of amendments to SOLAS Chapter VI since the current Regulations were written in 2006. Operators should be familiar with these requirements since these are already in force internationally and therefore we do not foresee any changes to current practices. The new Regulations will implement all amendments up to and including those within MSC.380(94).
