Proposed legislation to update and replace the Isle of Man Ship Registry's Accident Reporting and Investigation Regulations.

Closed 13 Apr 2020

Opened 2 Mar 2020


The Isle of Man Ship Registry is consulting on Regulations to give effect to the International Maritime Organisation’s Casualty Investigation Code. The Ship Registry also intends to include requirements for investigating accidents on ships not covered by the IMO Code (for example fishing boats and pleasure vessels). The new Regulations will replace the existing Isle of Man Merchant Shipping (Accident Reporting & Investigation) Regulations 2001. Please be aware this is a legislation project to update existing requirements and any changes required to be made by operators of Isle of Man registered ships will be minor.
