PSA welcomes post-Costa Concordia cruise industry Operational Safety Review
The Passenger Shipping Association has welcomed the announcement by Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) that in response to the Costa Concordia incident and as part of the industry’s continuous efforts to review and improve safety measures, they have launched a Cruise Industry Operational Safety Review.
The PSA, European Cruise Council and CLIA are fully committed to working with the International Maritime Organisation, governments and regulatory bodies, including Parliament and the European Commission, to implement any necessary regulatory changes.
The Operational Safety Review will include a comprehensive assessment of the critical human factors and operational aspects of maritime safety.
As best practices are identified, they will be shared among CLIA members and any appropriate recommendations will be shared with the IMO. Recommendations will be made on an ongoing basis.
Key components of the Review
An internal review by CLIA members of their own operational safety practices and procedures concerning issues of navigation, evacuation, emergency training, and related practices and procedures
In a statemrnt, the CLIA said: “While the cruise industry has an outstanding safety record, CLIA is fully committed to understanding the factors that contributed to the Concordia incident and is proactively responding to all maritime safety issues.
“The Cruise Industry Operational Safety Review will enable the industry to do so in a meaningful and expedited manner.”
