BIMCO is appealing for reports of accidents in the Straits of Malacca and Singapore.
Here’s its announcement:
At the 35th meeting of the Tripartite Technical Experts Group on “The Safety of Navigation in the Straits of Malacca and Singapore” held at Yogyakarta, Indonesia on 4-7 October 2010, the Round Table of international shipping associations (RTisa) agreed with Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore to initiate a project aimed at improving navigational safety within the Straits of Malacca and Singapore (SoMS).
This project will focus on an analysis of marine accidents and incidents that have occurred in the SoMS between 2000 and 2010. The analysis would serve well to identify the causes behind such incidents, and thereby enable the coastal states and other stakeholders to implement appropriate corrective measures.
