Description: The loss of the bulk carrier Nur Allya in August 2019 cast a shad- ow over the industry’s excellent safety performance throughout the previous year, during which no bulk carrier casualties were report- ed. This incident alone clearly demonstrates that there is no room for complacency, and INTERCARGO calls for a prompt and thor- ough investigation into this tragic loss. It is only through effective root cause analysis that appropriate corrective actions can be put in place to ensure that such an accident never happens again.
Lessons learned from past incidents play an important role in de- termining where additional safety improvements are necessary both at an industry and an international level. To this end the prompt publication of thorough and complete casualty investigation re- ports remains a key objective of the industry. It is vitally important that casualty investigation reports are submitted to the Internation- al Maritime Organization (IMO) in a timely manner so that the root
causes of serious incidents can be properly identified and the appropriate corrective ac- tions taken.
The industry finds it difficult to accept that only 24, or about 62%, of a total of 39 bulk carrier losses had their investigation reports made available on the IMO Global Integrated Shipping Information System (GISIS) data- base at the end of January 2020. The aver-
age time from incident to a report becoming available has been 32 months for these investigations.
