Description:SINCE the last edition of this book was published in 1982, the International Maritime
Organisation has concentrated on the implementation of Conventions which had already
been adopted in the seventies. As a result the International Conventions on Prevention of
Pollution from Ships (MARPOL 1973/78) and on Standards of Training, Certification
and Watchkeeping for Seaf'arers, 1978; the Convention on Limitation of Liability for
Maritime Claims, 1976 and the Athens Convention relating to the Carriage of Passengers
and their Luggage by Sea, 1974 were ratified by the required number of states between
1983 and 1987 and so came into force internationally. These conventions were given the
force of law in the United Kingdom by applying commencement orders to the
appropriate Sections and Schedules provided for that purpose in the M.S.Act 1979.
Relatively minor changes to shipping legislation were made by the M.S.Acts 1983 and
1984 and the law on pilotage in the U.K. was revised by the Pilotage Act 1987. The loss
of the ferry Herald of Free Enterprise in 1987 was followed quickly by the introduction
of regulations which attempted to improve the operational safety of Ro/ Ro passenger
ferries. In May 1988 the M.S.Act 1988 was passed and partly brought into force. This
introduces, with other matters, changes which affect the registration of British ships in
the future. Unless otherwise stated. I have endeavoured to give the legal position as at
31st December 1988.
