Description: In order for the safety of life, the environment, the ship and the cargo to be promoted at the merchant maritime field it was necessary that all countries should cooperate and work together to succeed in that. The outcome of this was the birth of an international body called the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
In this project we will go through everything around it, not only in general but in detail.
In the first chapter we will review everything that IMO is, does and how it works, and that alone can provide us with knowledge all around IMO in general.
In the second chapter we will read about its history in detail.
In the third chapter we will see who is a part of IMO and who its members consists of.
In the fourth chapter we will understand what its structure is and how its committees cooperate together to achieve their goals.
In the fifth chapter we will read in which way IMO develops and what their structure are.
In the sixth chapter we will learn about the main weapon of the IMO, which is its conventions, and how they are adopted and are entering into force, how the states accept them etc. and we will go through the four major IMO conventions in detail SOLAS, MARPOL, STCW and IAMSAR.
In the seventh chapter we will see other conventions and the regulations based on categories according to maritime issues, which are maritime safety, security and piracy, marine environment, legal matters, human element and facilitation. Here we can read the various issues that arise through the years and how the IMO managed to carry them out with different actions for each.
The eighth chapter is all about the technical cooperation that IMO provides to the world.
Finally, we can find the epilogue and the references that made this subject real.
I would like to thank my professor Ms. Papaleonida Paraskevi for assisting me to go through the whole process of creating this project.
