The Maritime Safety Committee,

 RECALLING Article 28(b) of the Convention on the International Maritime Organization concerning the functions of the Committee,

 RECALLING ALSO resolution A.886(21), by which the Assembly resolved that the function of adopting performance standards and technical specifications, as well as amendments thereto, shall be performed by the Maritime Safety Committee and/or the Marine Environment Protection Committee, as appropriate, on behalf of the Organization,

 NOTING that in the Revised Guidance to the master for avoiding dangerous situations in adverse weather and sea conditions (MSC.1/Circ.1228), information about heel angle and roll period is regarded as relevant for assessment of the ship's stability situation in adverse weather and sea conditions,

 NOTING ALSO that, at its ninetieth session, it had adopted resolution MSC.333(90) on Revised Performance standards for shipborne voyage data recorders (VDRs),

 NOTING FURTHER that, at its eighty-eighth session, instead of adding the requirement for an electronic inclinometer to the performance standards for VDRs, it had decided to develop dedicated performance standards for inclinometers,

 RECOGNIZING the need to define minimum requirements for a heel angle and roll period measurement device to ensure that heeling information is provided in a reliable manner on board ships to be used by the crew to assess the dynamic situation of the ship and to be available for marine casualty investigation,

 HAVING CONSIDERED, at its ninety-second session, the draft Performance standards for electronic inclinometers prepared by the Sub-Committee on Safety of Navigation, at its fifty-eighth session,

  1 ADOPTS the Performance standards for electronic inclinometers, set out in the annex to the present resolution;
