Muster rules start Jan. 1

ADVERTISEMENT

Amendments to SOLAS will enter into force on Jan. 1 that require passenger mustering and briefing before or on departure for ships engaged in international voyages lasting more than 24 hours.

The mustering amendment requires that if passengers are scheduled to be on board for more than 24 hours, musters of newly embarked passengers shall take place before or immediately on departure. This shall include instruction in using the lifejackets and the action to take in an emergency.

A passenger safety briefing also will be required to be given immediately before or immediately after departure. The briefing does not have to be separate; it can be included in the muster. While the briefing can be supplemented by information cards, posters or videos, these may not be used to replace it.
