There has been much debate about the COLREGS over the last 12 months or so, with many suggesting that it is now time for not just some amendments but a total revision of the Rules.

So are the COLREGS still fit for purpose?

The future: autonomous ships

Many believe that in the not so distant future, the fundamental changes in the way in which ships will be operated will render the current COLREGS unworkable. This is primarily a reference to autonomous ships, but it is also the case that the increasing use of automation and reducing numbers of crew are likely to result in the bridges of crewed ships in the future being unmanned for

Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Note from the Managing Director (3 April 2020)

In line with guidance from governments and public health authorities our offices remain closed and staff work from home. You can reach us by email and phone as normal as all desk phone extensions are redirected.

INTERTANKO meetings
As highlighted previously, we have postponed all physical Committee and Panel meetings until restrictions are lifted, including, unfortunately, our Annual Tanker Event in Oslo. We are however running virtual meetings to ensure the work of our various bodies does not get delayed unduly and will continue to do so until the situation improves. We do not anticipate to have the opportunity for physical meetings until Q3 2020 at the earliest.

COVID-19 impacting maritime security

Written by defenceWeb -

The COVID-19 coronavirus will have a profound impact on commercial and security trends within shipping this year, and efforts to mitigate maritime crime in West Africa will be hampered if the virus continues to spread.

This is according to Dryad Global, which said the emergence of COVID-19 as a severe global public health issue has created significant ramifications, including economic disruption and the threat of a global recession, logistical complexities, geopolitical considerations, and security issues.

Dryad cautioned that West Africa is particularly vulnerable to rises in piracy, partly driven by a lack of effective mitigation strategies, and co-ordinated security responses to piracy and maritime crime remain embryonic across the region. “Should, as is likely, COVID-19 spread of throughout sub-Saharan Africa,

Capitanía alerta del peligro de abordaje en la ría por las invasiones del canal

Advierten de que veleros y pesqueros se cruzan en el camino de los mercantes

VILAGARCÍA / LA VOZ 02/02/2020 05:00 H
 

La ría de Arousa tiene un intenso tráfico. Conviven barcos de pesca, de marisqueo, de batea con barcos deportivos y barcos de recreo. Y todos ellos, con los cruceros y grandes cargueros que navegan hacia el Puerto de Vilagarcía. Para evitar colisiones entre unos y otros -en el sentido figurado y en el literal- es necesario que todo el mundo respete las normas. Y eso es algo que, al parecer, no se está haciendo. Desde Capitanía Marítima se denuncia que se están registrando constantes invasiones del canal de acceso al puerto de Vilagarcía.

En un escrito del organismo encargado de vigilar el tráfico en la
