Revision of the “International Code for the Construction and Equipment of Ships Carrying Liquefied Gases in Bulk”.

A note from the General Manager of the Society of International Gas Tanker and Terminal Operators Ltd (SIGTTO).

At MSC 83 (2007) , the UK administration introduced a joint paper proposing the revision of the “International Code for the Construction and Equipment of Ships Carrying Liquefied Gases in Bulk” - the IGC Code. Tis was placed on to the BLG work programme with the understanding that liquefied gas shipping industry would prepare a revised Code for eventual review

by IMO. An industry-wide steering group was established under the chairmanship of David Macrae of UK MCA in early 2008 to oversee the process. 10 working groups were created to conduct the detailed review work. Te overall activities were co-ordinated by the Society of International Gas Tanker and Terminal Operators Ltd. (SIGTTO) who provided general secretarial support to all the groups. Te revised Code will be introduced to BLG
