Everyone who moves in marine circles is familiar with those five letters: SOLAS
SOLAS stands for Safety Of Life At Sea SOLAS actually refers to the 1974 International Convention for Safety of Life at Sea and sets out the standards concerning the use of vessels in general and on board safety and security.
The first SOLAS convention appeared in 1914 following the tragic sinking of the Titanic. The 1974 SOLAS convention is the fifth one of its kind.
Several sectors are covered by the SOLAS standard:
– Construction – Subdivision and stability, machines and electrical installations.
– Detection and extinguishing of fire and protection against fire.
– Mandatory lifesaving equipment and the LSA (Life Saving Appliances) Code
– Radio communications
– Navigation safety
– Transport of merchandise
– Transport of dangerous merchandise
– Nuclear-powered vessels
– Safety management of a vessel’s operation
– Safety measures for high-speed vessels (HSC Code or High Speed Craft Code)
– Special measures to enhance maritime safety
– Special measures to enhance maritime security
– Additional measures for vessels carrying goods in bulk
The SOLAS standard is the most extensive set of international regulations for passenger vessels and is embedded within the IMO or International Maritime Organization (http://www.imo.org).
