To all Members,
The latest IFSMA Newsletter (No.24) is now available on our website.<https://www.ifsma.org/newsletters.html>
Also on the website you will find reports from the IMO Meetings for Pollution Prevention & Response (PPR 6) and Ship Systems & Equipment (SSE 6) sub-committees and earlier meetings. <https://www.ifsma.org/IMO%20Reports.html>
Finally, attached is IMO Document SSE 6/6/1. I draw your attention to this Paper submitted to the recent IMO Sub-Committee on Ship Systems and Equipment (SSE 6). This highlights a number of recent fires that have occurred in the Ro-Ro decks of Ro-Ro passenger ships which have been investigated by EU accident investigation bodies. This Paper presents extracts from the relevant accident investigation reports and includes safety recommendations that could be useful to all our Member Shipmasters of Ro-Ro Passenger Ships. I would therefore be most grateful if you would give this a wide distribution.
We hope to have some news on the location and dates for this year's General Assembly soon.
Best regards, Paul Owen
