Resolution 6 Training of personnel on passenger ships

 THE CONFERENCE,

HAVING ADOPTED the 1995 amendments to the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW), 1978, including regulation V/2 on mandatory minimum requirements for the training and qualifications of masters, officers, ratings and other personnel on ro-ro passenger ships,

ANTICIPATING that such special training provisions will significantly increase the safety of passengers on ro-ro passenger ships during emergency situations,

RECOGNIZING the important contribution of ship's personnel towards the safe evacuation of passengers in emergency situations,

APPRECIATING that personnel designated to assist passengers in emergency situations on passenger ships may have to assist fellow crew members who are not specially trained and that this could affect the behaviour of passengers in such situations,

BEING AWARE that some passenger ship personnel are not required to be trained to the same standard as personnel on ro-ro passenger ships,

  • 1. INVITES the International Maritime Organization to consider developing appropriate provisions covering the training of masters, officers, ratings and other personnel serving on passenger ships for inclusion in the 1978 STCW Convention, as amended;

  • 2. INVITES Parties to the 1978 STCW Convention to consider applying voluntarily to personnel serving on passenger ships, the relevant training provisions of regulation V/2.
