E/R on fire CO2 used Action after use of CO2? Keep monitoring the temperature of bulkheads and continue boundary cooling once satisfied/confirmed that fire has been put off then send another set of SCBA party to ascertain visually that fire has been extinguished - once SCBA party is out of the engine room then start the ventilation - since the CO2 is used up and fire may break out anytime and there is no second defence so consult with the owner and class socty and head for POR to replenish CO2.

(Form A) to the master of the ship. Next, the data of the respective ship and the inspection result will be recorded on the central computer database, located in Saint Malo, France. For the purpose of control on compliance with on board operational requirements, examples of clear grounds are, amongst others, the following:

evidence of operational shortcomings revealed during port State control proce dures in accordance with SOLAS 74/78/88, MARPOL 73/78 or STCW 78; evidence of cargo operations or other procedures not being conducted safely or in accordance with IMO guidelines; involvement of the ship in incidents due to failure to comply with operational re quirements; evidence, from the witnessing of fire or abandon ship drills, that the crew are not familiar with essential procedures; absence of an up-to-date muster list; indications that key crew members may not be able to communicate with each other or with other persons on board.

1. Getting his name endorsed on the COR as the lawfully appointed Master of the vsl. 2. Any changes in COR to be duly endorsed by registrar of port of registry 3.

Duty to check provisions, water, accommodation, galley and stores on a regular basis. 7. To assist in case of collision. 8. To report dangers to navigation. 9. Render assistance on receiving distress signals. 10. Reporting of Shipping casualties.
8.P&I Clubs role in case of oil pollution ?
P&I Clubs P&I Clubs are mutual, non-profit making associations which insure their shipowner members against various third-party liabilities, including oil pollution. Whilst each Club bears the first part of any claim, the concept of mutuality is extended by the pooling of large claims by the major P&I Clubs that are members of the International Group. To safeguard members in the event of a catastrophic claim above the limit of this pool, excess reinsurance is placed by the International Group Clubs on the worlds insurance markets, in the case of oil pollution up to US$1 billion. It should be emphasized, however, that this sum has no relevance in the vast majority of oil spill cases since it would only be available in rare circumstances, for example if a tanker owner lost the right to limit his liability under the CLC in a very expensive case.

9.Harmonisation of contingency planning...wants explanation in full details of all 6 modules

To avoid duplication, shipboard contingency plans must differentiate between "initial actions" and the major response effort involving "subsequent response", depending on the emergency situation and the type of ship. It is recommended that a uniform and integrated system of shipboard emergency plans should be treated as part of the International Safety Management (ISM) Code, forming a fundamental part of the company's individual Safety Management System (SMS).
I Introduction :- should provide guidance and an overview of the subject-matter. II Provisions :- should contain information and explanations on how the system could be

developed on the basis of suggestions for improvement made by the individual company and

shipboard personnel.
III Planning, preparedness and training :- should provide for emergency training and education

of shipboard personnel with a view to developing general awareness and understanding of actions to he taken in the event of an emergency.
IV Response Actions :- should provide guidance for shipboard personnel in an emergency when the

ship is under way, berthed, moored, at anchor, in port or in dry dock.

V Reporting Procedures :- should take care of the following:

Every effort should be made to assure that information regarding: - ship interest contacts; - coastal State contacts; and - port contacts for reporting emergencies are part of the system and are regularly updated.
VI Annexes :- * Plans and diagrams concerning details of the ship's general arrangement

* Bunker and ballast information * Additional documents (e.g. list of contact points) * Industry guidelines * Cargo information, etc.
These were the questions he asked within a span of 10 minutes. Small explanations are not enough for him.

List of amendments expected to enter into force in the coming years

January 2011: Entry into force of December 2008 amendments to SOLAS Amendments to SOLAS chapter VI to make mandatory the International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes Code (IMSBC Code) The IMSBC Code will replace the Code of Safe Practice for Solid Bulk Cargoes (BC Code), which was first adopted as a recommendatory code in 1965 and has been updated at regular intervals since then. The aim of the mandatory IMSBC Code is to facilitate the safe stowage and shipment of solid bulk cargoes by providing information on the dangers associated with the shipment of certain types of cargo and instructions on the appropriate procedures to be adopted. 1 January 2011: Entry into force of June 2009 amendments to SOLAS ECDIS and BNWAS to be made mandatory under SOLAS Amendments to SOLAS regulation V/19, to make mandatory the carriage of Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS) and Bridge Navigational Watch Alarm Systems (BNWAS), under SOLAS chapter V, Safety of Navigation. The requirements will be mandatory for new ships and phased-in for existing ships. Other SOLAS amendments coming into force: an amendment to SOLAS regulation II-1/3-5.2, to prohibit all new installations of asbestos on board ships, without exceptions; and amendments to the title of Chapter VI to read, Carriage of Cargoes "and Oil Fuels" and to Regulation VI/5-1 on Material safety data sheets (MSDS) to require MSDS to be provided for ships carrying oil or oil fuel, prior to the loading of such oil as cargo in bulk or bunkering of oil fuel. The MSC also approved Recommendations for material safety data sheets (MSDS) for MARPOL Annex I type cargoes and oil fuels. 1 January 2011: Entry into force of July 2009 amendments to MARPOL MARPOL Annex I - transfer of oil cargo between oil tankers at sea Amendments to MARPOL Annex I for the prevention of marine pollution during some ship-to-ship (STS) oil transfer operations. The new chapter 8 on Prevention of pollution during transfer of oil cargo between oil tankers at sea will apply to oil tankers of 150 gross tonnage and above and will require any oil tanker involved in oil cargo STS operations to have, on board, a plan prescribing how to conduct STS operations (the STS Plan), which would be approved by its Administration. Notification to the relevant coastal State will be required not less than 48 hours in advance of the scheduled

STS operations although some relaxation to this rule is allowed in certain, very specific, cases. The regulations are not intended to apply to bunkering operations. Consequential amendments to the International Oil Pollution Prevention (IOPP) Certificate, the Supplement to the IOPP Certificate and the Oil Record Book. Amendments to MARPOL Annex I regulations 1, 12, 13, 17 and 38, relating to the on board management of oil residue (sludge). The amendments clarify long standing requirements and remove existing ambiguities in order to facilitate compliance by ships' crews. Definitions for oil residue (sludge), oil residue (sludge) tanks, oily bilge water and oily bilge water holding tanks are introduced for the first time. Related amendments to the Supplement to the IOPP Certificate, Form A and Form B, and to the Oil Record Book.
