ICS ANNOUNCES NEW SAFETY GUIDE FOR GAS TANKERS

Monday, September 24, 2018 

The global trade association for ship operators, International Chamber of Shipping (ICS), has announced that it will be publishing a new edition of the ICS Tanker Safety Guide (Liquefied Gas).

The ICS Gas Guide is claimed to be the definitive industry best practice guidance for gas carrier operators, and is a carriage requirement under the national regulations of many flag states.

“It is strongly recommended that a copy of the completely revised third edition is carried on board every ship engaged in the transportation of liquefied gas by sea” said ICS Deputy Secretary General, Simon Bennett.

The fully revised third edition (350 A4 pages with illustrations and cargo data sheets) replaces and supersedes the previous 1995 edition, and will be published in December 2018.  Purchasers will also have access to an electronic version with a ‘search’ function. 

ICS says that demand is expected to be high and that shipping companies should place orders with maritime booksellers now.

Additional information can be found on the ICS website.
