SOLAS update - September 16, 2014
CREDITED TO MAREX
The Riyadh MOU (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and UAE) will launch a concentrated inspection campaign (CIC) on fire safety systems from 1 October 2014 to 31 December 2014.
The purpose of the CIC is to ensure:
During regular port state inspections the fire safety plan, fire control measures, drills, crew awareness and applicable documentation will be verified in more detail for compliance with SOLAS Chapter II-2 and the International Code for Fire Safety Systems.
If a deficiency is found, the actions of the Port State may vary from recording a deficiency and instructing the master to rectify it within a certain period to detention of the ship until the deficiency has been rectified. Any detentions will be recorded in the monthly detention lists of the Riyadh MOU.
The results of the campaign will be analyzed and the findings will be presented to the governing body of the Riyadh MOU for submission to the relevant IMO sub-committees.
Coltraco Ultrasonics is pleased to see that fire safety is taking a more important role around the world. We fully support those who wish to increase the safety parameters in order to save lives and reduced risks to infrastructure and cargo. We are pleased that our Portamarine® liquid level indicator complies with the SOLAS IMO FSS Chapter 5 which states that vessels should have a means to test the onboard fire suppression systems; Portamarine® enables you to check if the cylinders have leaked to ensure that they are ready to action in the event of a fire.
