IMO goal-based standards are 1) broad, over-arching safety, environmental and/or security standards that ships are required to meet during their lifecycle; 2) the required level to be achieved by the requirements applied by class societies and other recognized organizations, Administrations and IMO; 3) clear, demonstrable, verifiable, long standing, implementable and achievable, irrespective of ship design and technology; and 4) specific enough in order not to be open to differing interpretations.

Additional information

Resolution MSC.290(87)

Adoption of Amendments to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1974, as amended

A​​s a specialized agency of the United Nations, IMO is the global standard-setting authority for the safety, security and environmental performance of international shipping. Its main role is to create a regulatory framework for the shipping industry that is fair and effective, universally adopted and universally implemented.  

In other words, its role is to create a level playing-field so that ship operators cannot address their financial issues by simply cutting corners and compromising on safety, security and environmental performance. This approach also encourages innovation and efficiency.

Shipping is a truly international industry, and it can only operate effectively if the regulations and standards are themselves agreed, adopted and implemented on an international basis. And IMO is the forum at which this process takes place.
