Modelled on the globally recognised ICS Bridge Procedures Guide, this publication provides clear guidance on safe and environmentally responsible engine room operations and maintenance, supporting internationally agreed standards and recommendations adopted by the International Maritime Organization (IMO).



It sets out best practice approaches to operating and maintaining engine rooms, and all the equipment they contain, in a safe and environmentally responsible manner. It is recommended that a copy is carried on board every merchant ship.

This first edition of the Engine Room Procedures Guide has been developed by the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) for use by marine engineer officers and ratings responsible for the operation and maintenance of engine rooms on merchant ships. This Guide is primarily intended to provide guidance for Chief Engineers and other members of the engineering team working on all types of ship, but it should also assist shipping companies and training institutions.

 

The Engine Room Procedures Guide sets out routine engine room procedures and emergency checklists for use by the ship’s engineering team. It provides clear guidance on best practice approaches to operating and maintaining engine rooms, and all the equipment they contain, in a safe and environmentally responsible manner. This new ICS Guide embraces and promotes adherence to internationally agreed standards, and is intended to serve as a complement to regulations and recommendations adopted by the UN International Maritime Organization (IMO).

 

Many of the procedures outlined in this Guide are already in widespread use across the industry and may seem obvious to experienced crew. However, feedback from ICS member national shipowners’ associations suggests that incidents still occur, even during routine procedures. Setting down basic procedures, in a best practice guide, should therefore help to further improve safety standards across the global fleet, consistent with the concept of continuous improvement which underpins the IMO International Safety Management (ISM) Code.

 

ICS has modelled this book on its widely used Bridge Procedures Guide. ICS is therefore now pleased to be able to offer comprehensive guidance for the safe conduct of two core areas of ship operations. Over time it is hoped that the Engine Room Procedures Guide might enjoy a similar degree of recognition and authority as its longstanding sister publication.

 

ICS welcomes feedback and suggestions about this Guide.
