INTERCARGO International Association of Dry Cargo Shipowners Presentation to Tripartite Seoul, 15-16 September, 2006
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.
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.
INTERCARGO Positive Drivers Industry Consolidation Corporate Governance Self Regulation
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)
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
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
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
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
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
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?
