IMO Polar Code
Vessels sailing in Arctic and Antarctic areas are affected by the IMO Polar Code which enters into force on 1st January 2017. Besides technical requirements also operational aspects have to be considered.
Polar water operational manual
Ships will need to carry a polar water operational manual to provide the owner, operator, master and crew with sufficient information regarding the ship’s operational capabilities and limitations in order to support their decision-making processes. The chapters in the Polar Code each set out goals and functional requirements. Rood Boven Groen is competent to design and implement a custom-made manual for your ship. Please contact us for the possibilities.
Polar Ship Certificate
To get a Polar Ship Certificate requires an assessment. This includes information on identified operational limitations. And plans, procedures and/or additional safety equipment necessary to minimize incidents with potential safety or environmental consequences in the polar waters. Rood Boven Groen gladly assists you with the operations to get a Polar ship certificate. Please contact us for more information.
Trainings as defined in the IMO Polar Code
As defined in the Polar Code STCW there are two main trainings defined: the basic and the advanced training. These trainings are expected for entry into force on 1st July 2018.
The Polar Code training is under construction with Rood Boven Groen. Because of our strong network with seafarers sailing in the Arctic and Antarctic areas, we’re very motivated to design a superb and challenging training. Please visit our website for the latest updates!
