IMO-Vega on the Web

Version 27 of the IMO-Vega database is now live. This update includes documents from Assembly 32, MEPC 77 and MSC 104, and circulars published until the end of April 2022.

This release includes the HSSC Survey Guidelines 2021, the PSC Procedure 2021 and the 2021 Non-exhaustive list of obligations under the III Code, all adopted by Assembly 32. MSC 104 adopted amendments to Load Lines Convention (88) and IGC Code, plus performance standards for S-VDRs and for VDRs. MEPC 77 adopted three resolutions, including one new guideline.

In addition to the content update, the advanced search function for SOLAS-related instruments has been improved. This is specified in Appendix A of the user manual.

IMO-Vega is an essential tool for anyone involved in shipping: shipowners and operators, shipbuilders, classification societies, casualty investigators, governments, insurers and underwriters, port authorities, surveyors and many others.

The IMO-Vega Database, developed jointly by IMO and Det Norske Veritas (DNV GL AS), puts all the necessary information at your fingertips. Given year of build, ship type, ship size, cargo, trade area and flag, IMO-Vega will quickly identify the requirements applicable to the ship in question.

Unlike other, similar products, IMO-Vega contains historical data including regulations which have been superseded. In the context of Port State Control, for example, access to the correct historical regulations is essential.

  • 1974 SOLAS Convention, including 1978 and 1988 Protocols and all amendments
