Consultation Outcome Report - Summary of consultee comments and government responses to them.
The purpose of the proposed Regulations is to bring up to date the UK’s transposition of Chapter V (Safety of Navigation) of the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea 1974 (SOLAS) in domestic law. At the same time, it is proposed that they will introduce Ambulatory Reference with the Regulations to incorporate any future amendments to the technical standards in the Chapter into UK law by reference on an ongoing basis, instead of transposing it provision by provision.
