New safety requirements for older UK passenger ships go out for second consultation

The Maritime & Coastguard Agency begins a second public consultation today (29 May) on proposed new technical requirements for domestic passenger ships.
The planned changes aim to make sure older ships more closely match the safety standards of newer vessels.
Feedback on the initial consultation has been used to modify the proposals in the areas relating to lifejacket provision, fire safety and the vessels in scope of damage stability requirements.
Industry, operators and the public are encouraged to participate in the consultation. You can take part by visiting the Policy Papers and Consultations page of www.gov.uk.
