COVID-19 has created issues related to the shipboard interface between ship and shore-based personnel during port calls. Shipping is vital to the maintenance of global supply chains and it is vital that all parties in the ship/shore interface should keep everyone as safe as possible without putting anyone at undue risk. IMO has released a new circular with the attached guidance which is produced in collaboration with a number of industry bodies including the International Group of P&I clubs. It aims to address major concerns and expectations of shipsʹ crews and shore-based personnel through the implementation of practical, risk-based measures to address COVID-19 risks. In a separate guidance IMO has also issued guidelines on COVID-19 related PPE.
It is recommended that the attached guidelines are shared with the ship and shore-based staff and workers including the relevant national authorities such as health, customs, immigration, border control; etc who are involved in ship/shore interface.
