REGULATORY ASSESSMENT

Recognizing the influence that regulations have on our work and the importance of rational, effective regulations to our clients, we actively participate in rule and standards development with a number of regulatory bodies; providing working group chairmen at the IMO, technical analysis of regulations and regulatory proposals.

Recent involvement includes the International Maritime Organization (SLF/SDC, BLG, FP/DE/SSE, MSC and MEPC), the United States Coast Guard, ASTM, the Marine Board of the National Research Council, the European Commission and the American Bureau of Shipping with whom we have co-authored a number of advisories.
