The updated “Port Marine Safety Code” was published on the 3rd Novemebr on the Government’s website.
The main changes relate to the applicability of the code to other organisations (such as marine berths, terminals and jetties), the introductory passages (in the form of a new executive summary and introduction), the role of the duty holder (including some late clarification suggestions we raised), and the MCA’s three-year compliance exercises.
The revised PMSC does now also include a new short ‘What I need to do’ section which summarises 10 recommended measures to help achieve compliance.
As you will see Code now only contains four sections as some detail will be moved to the Guide to Good Practice.
