IMO member state audit scheme (IMSAS)

IMSAS :- It is seen as a key tool for assessing member states' performance in meeting their obligations and responsibilities as flag, port and coastal states under the relevant IMO treaties and then offering the necessary assistance where required, for them to meet their obligation fully and effectively. The mandatory IMO instruments included in the scope of the scheme cover SOLAS,MARPOL,STCW,Load lines, Tonnage and COLREG.
       The resolution was adopted at 28th assembly. The task of IMP sub committee on implementation of IMO instruments include

  1. review the rights and obligations of States emanating from the IMO treaty instruments;
  2. assess, monitor and review the current level of implementation of IMO instruments by States in their capacity as flag, port and coastal States, with a view to identifying areas where States may have difficulties in fully implementing them;
  3. identify the reasons for the difficulties in implementing provisions of relevant IMO instruments, taking into account any relevant information collected through, inter alia, the assessment of performance, the investigation of marine casualties and incidents and port State control (PSC) data, while paying particular attention to difficulties faced by developing countries;
  4. consider proposals to assist States in implementing and complying with IMO instruments by the development of appropriate instruments, guidelines and recommendations.
  5. analyse investigation reports into marine casualties and incidents and maintain an efficient and comprehensive knowledge-based mechanism to support the identification of trends and feed into the IMO rule-making process;
  6. review IMO standards on maritime safety and security and the protection of the marine environment, to maintain an updated and harmonized guidance on survey and certification related requirements; and
  7. promote global harmonization of PSC activities
