IMO fixes BNWAS rule

ADVERTISEMENT

Lloyd’s Register released an alert in September about bridge navigational watch alarm system (BNWAS) requirements for vessels built before July 2002.



New SOLAS requirements for BNWAS entered into force on Jan. 1, 2011, and were intended to apply to all vessels. However, an omission in the amendments meant the requirements technically did not apply to vessels constructed (having their keels laid) before July 1, 2002. That has been corrected.



For yachts, which are considered cargo vessels for the purposes of IMO regulations, the enforcement dates are as follows:



Yachts 3,000 gt and over must meet the requirements not later than the first survey on or after Jan. 1, 2016.

Yachts 500-3,000 gt must meet the requirements not later than the first survey on or after Jan. 1, 2017.

Yachts 150-500 gt must meet the requirements not later than the first survey on or after Jan. 1, 2018.
