Bridging the Arctic Marine Risk Gap - The Need for a Cross Arctic Ice Regime

Linking ice conditions to ice class requirements

Event Type: Conferences and Workshops

When: 12 March 2014

Where: London, United Kingdom

More information:


This workshop on 12 March will focus on the risks from operating in ice with a particular focus on the gap between the different rules and regulations of the IACS Polar Class Rules, the (draft) IMO Polar Code and the lack of a pan-Arctic benchmark for determining when different ice class requirements apply. In this workshop, the world’s leading marine, insurance and ice experts will try to come to a consensus to highlight these issues. A recommendation will be drafted with a request to fill the knowledge gap and create a viable cross jurisdictional ice regime that will enable the IMO Polar Code and IACS Polar Class classifications to work efficiently. The objective is in other words, to support the sustainable development of the Arctic.
