1 INTERCARGO International Association of Dry Cargo Shipowners Presentation to Tripartite Seoul, September, 2006

2 INTERCARGO Sharing Information for Ships in Service (Incident Information Sharing) Where do we want to be? Every Direction Paper, Mission, Vision and Goal Statement talks about Quality, Safety and Transparency.

3 INTERCARGO The current situation? Owners are reluctant to release information for commercial reasons; Class take their instructions from their clients e.g. owners and shipbuilders; Limited information sharing within Class. A Reality Gap exists between stated desire and what actually happens.

4 INTERCARGO Positive Drivers Industry Consolidation Corporate Governance Self Regulation

5 INTERCARGO Negative Drivers Regulators Legal Commercial

6 INTERCARGO Key Areas of Enhancement Human (accidents, etc) Technical (machinery failures, performance) Casualties ( sister ship, yard competence, steel batches, etc) Operational (collisions, groundings, pollution, etc)

7 INTERCARGO Human Element Acknowledged importance as a prime link in the chain No agreement on measurement of competency Root Cause Analysis under discussion Examinations are only part of the process

8 INTERCARGO Hull, Machinery and Equipment Consider: Commercial implications at every stage Mechanisms for recording and collecting information – no common resource Insurance implications Counterfeiting of spare parts Restrictive practices e.g. national Plus: Confidentiality Clauses

9 INTERCARGO Casualties Data providers: Flag States – Casualty reports to IMO Commercial organisations e.g. LR Fairplay Port State Control Sector Analysis e.g.Intercargo/Dry Bulk

10 INTERCARGO Operational Negative Performance Indicators INTERCARGO has benchmarked the Bulk Carrier Fleet against the following incidents: Anchoring & Steering, Arrest, Cargo issues, Collision, Contact (ship), Contact (fixed object), Crew issues, Fire/Explosion, Grounding, Pollution, Propulsion, Structural, Terminal, Other INTERCARGO

11 Statement of Facts Information exists but it is not being released Confidential reporting systems are in place e.g. CHIRP and MARS Tanker Structure Co-operation Forum has been in place for many years – could it be used for other sectors

12 INTERCARGO The Way Forward How committed are we to effect change? Do we believe that change is necessary? Could we establish a resource website to share information on a need to know basis? Does Freedom of Information have its limits?

13 INTERCARGO THANK YOU!
