IMO e-Book EA749E Safety Code for Fishermen & Fishing Vessels (A), 2006 Edition
The Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) entrusted the revision of the Code of Safety for Fishermen and Fishing Vessels to its Sub-Committee on Stability and Load Lines and on Fishing Vessels Safety (SLF) and recommended that the recent developments in fishing vessel design and fishing operations should be taken into consideration. The revised Code was approved by MSC at its seventy-ninth session in 2004 and approved by the FAO Committee on Fisheries at its twenty-sixth session in March 2005 and the Governing Body of ILO at its 293rd Session in June 2005. The revised version of part A, Safety and Health Practice, of the Code is directed primarily towards Competent Authorities, training institutions, fishing vessel owners, representative organizations of the crew, and non-governmental organizations having a recognized role in crew members' safety and health and training.
