The International Chamber of Shipping has published Coronavirus (COVID-19) Guidance for Ensuring a Safe Shipboard Interface Between Ship and Shore-Based Personnel.

The International Chamber of Shipping has published Coronavirus (COVID-19) Guidance for Ensuring a Safe Shipboard Interface Between Ship and Shore-Based Personnel. The Guidance, which is supported by the IG and BIMCO, aims to address major concerns and expectations of ship’s crews and shore-based personnel through the implementation of practical, risk-based measures to address COVID-19 risks to all personnel involved in the ship/shore interface. It includes recommended measures to be taken by shipping companies, shore-based service providers and port, immigration and customs authorities to address the risk from COVID-19 to their personnel, and outlines a hierarchy of controls as a guide to establishing effective safety control measures and reducing risk.

The club recommends that members follow the Guidance where possible to help reduce risk and keep ship and shore-based personnel safe.

The Guidance can be found on the right.
