Interpretation of the Polar Code

Facilitating consistent interpretation of the Code.

Objective

The adoption of the Polar Code was a first step towards ensuring safe and sustainable shipping in the Arctic. In order to ensure the success of the Polar Code there is a need to work towards facilitating, where applicable, consistent interpretation of the Code.

Activities

Building off of the survey submitted during the 2019-2021 workplan period, this project will convene a correspondence group of Arctic State Polar Code subject matter experts to analyze the survey results, and consider developing a paper containing Polar Code interpretations for possible submission to the IMO.
