IMO’s MSC starts another mega session

Meetings of IMO’s Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) are important way-stations on the international maritime regulatory superhighway. The MSC is meeting in London today for its 80th session, which lasts until May 20, and, as usual, it has an extensive agenda packed with items with the potential to add to the compliance burdens faced by the maritime industry. (Just one example. plucked at random from the list, is a proposal that the Company Identification Number be added to a slew of ISPS documents)
