Foreword

 

The Convention on the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972 has been accepted by many States since it was adopted on 20 October 1972 and entered into force on 15 July 1977. It was amended in 1981, 1987, 1989 and 1993 and has more recently been amended by resolution A.910(22), which was adopted by the twenty-second session of the Assembly on 29 November 2001 and entered into force on 29 November 2003. This publication contains the consolidated text of the 1972 Convention as amended in 1981, 1987, 1989, 1993 and 2001.

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.
