Description: The present International Code for Ships Operating in Polar Waters (Polar Code) was adopted by Maritime Safety Committee (MSC), at its ninety-fourth session, by resolution MSC.385(94), and by the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC), at its sixty-eighth session, by resolution MEPC.264(68), as the result of a strenuous work of various IMO bodies over a five-year period. The Polar Code, which enters into force on 1 January 2017, is mandatory under both the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) and the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL). In this context, the safety-related requirements are mandatory under the new chapter XIV of SOLAS, adopted by resolution
MSC.386(94), and the marine environment protection related requirements are mandatory under amendments to Annexes I, II, IV and V of MARPOL, adopted by resolution MEPC.265(68).
The Polar Code has been developed to supplement existing IMO instruments in order to provide a more comprehensive set of provisions to address the increased interests and traffic in the polar regions, and the unique operational, environmental and search and rescue concerns peculiar to these areas, taking into account that the consequences of any major safety or pollution incident in polar waters are likely to cause widespread harm to these pristine environments.
The Polar Code covers the full range of design, construction, equipment, operational, training, search and rescue and environmental protection matters relevant to ships operating in waters surrounding the two poles.
It includes mandatory measures covering safety (part l-A) and pollution prevention (part ll-A) and recommendatory provisions for both (parts l-B and ll-B).
