About IMO
Shipping is perhaps the most international of the world’s industries, serving more than
90 per cent of global trade by carrying huge quantities of cargo cost-effectively, cleanly
and safely. The ownership and management chain surrounding any ship can embrace many
countries, which calls for international standards to regulate shipping.
Established in 1948, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) is a specialized agency
of the United Nations with 169 Member States and three Associate Members. It is based in
the United Kingdom and has 300 staff. IMO’s main task has been to develop and maintain
a comprehensive regulatory framework for shipping, and its remit today includes safety,
environmental concerns, legal matters, technical co-operation, maritime security and the
efficiency of shipping.
IMO’s specialized committees and sub-committees are the focus for the technical work
to update existing legislation or to develop and adopt new regulations, with meetings
attended by maritime experts from Member Governments, together with those from
interested intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations.
The result is a comprehensive body of international conventions. First, there are measures
aimed at the prevention of accidents, including standards for ship design, construction,
equipment, operation and staffing – key international conventions include the International
Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), the International Convention for the
Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL) and the International Convention on
Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW).
There are also measures which recognize that accidents do happen, including rules
concerning distress and safety communications, the International Convention on Search
and Rescue (SAR) and the International Convention on Oil Pollution Preparedness,
Response and Co-operation (OPRC).
In addition, there are conventions which establish compensation and liability regimes,
including the International Convention on Civil Liability for Oil Pollution Damage
(CLC), the International Convention on the Establishment of an International Fund for
Compensation for Oil Pollution Damage (FUND) and the Athens Convention relating to the
Carriage of Passengers and their Luggage by Sea (PAL).
IMO has an extensive technical co-operation programme, which identifies needs among
resource-poor Members and matches them to assistance, such as training. IMO has
founded three advanced-level maritime educational institutes, in Malmö, in Malta and in
Trieste (which closed operations in 2005).
Today, we live in a society which is supported by a global economy which simply could
not function if it were not for shipping. IMO plays a key role in ensuring that lives at sea are
not put at risk and that the marine environment is not polluted by shipping – as summed up
in IMO’s mission statement: Safe, Secure and Efficient Shipping on Clean Oceans.

About IMO Publishing

IMO Publishing’s activities provide the world’s maritime community with numerous texts
(conventions, codes, regulations, recommendations, guidelines, etc.) prepared by the
Organization. There are over 200 titles available in English. Many are translated into Arabic,
Chinese, French, Russian and Spanish. IMO Publishing also produces digital products,
namely e-books, CDs and internet subscriptions. The dissemination of this information,
including attendance at maritime exhibitions worldwide and regular e-newsletters to
interested parties, plays an important role in promoting shipping as a safe, secure, efficient
and environmentally friendly method of transporting goods around the globe.
