SUB COMMITTEE ON SHIP DESIGN AND EQUIPMENT 52nd session Agenda item 20 ANY OTHER BUSINESS An example of “Emergency Towing Procedures” Submitted by Japan SUMMARY Executive summary:

This document provides an example of emergency towing procedures, which include Emergency Towing Booklet (ETB), intending to support the preparation of emergency towing procedures by shipowners/shipbuilders. 2 2.1.1 2.1.1.5 Paragraph 9 MSC 84/24, MSC 84/24/Add.1 and DE 50/27

Strategic Direction High level Action Planned output Action to be taken: Related documents: Introduction

1 The Maritime Safety Committee, at its eighty-fourth session, adopted amendments to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1974, including the amendments to chapter II-2, regulation 3-4, “Emergency towing arrangements and procedures,” and approved “Guidelines for owners/operators on preparing emergency towing procedures” (MSC.1/Circ.1255). 2 The new regulations will require all passenger ships and cargo ships to be provided with a ship-specific emergency towing procedure, which shall include drawings of fore and aft deck, showing possible emergency towing arrangements and inventory of equipment on board that can be used for emergency towing. The regulations will be applied to all passenger ships and cargo ships constructed on or after 1 January 2010, not later than 1 January 2010, and cargo ships constructed before 1 January 2010, not later than 1 January 2012.

For reasons of economy, this document is printed in a limited number. Delegates are kindly asked to bring their copies to meetings and not to request additional copies.

3 The regulations of the Convention and guidelines, however, do not provide standard formats for emergency towing procedures. Thus, the Sub-Committee on Ship Design and Equipment (DE), at its fiftieth session, invited Member Governments and international organizations to develop a workable example of emergency towing procedures and submit it for the information. Development of an example of an emergency towing booklet 4 Considering the request from DE 50, Japan conducted a project of developing an example of emergency towing procedures for a Panamax bulk carrier. 5 The main purpose of the project was to support shipowners/shipbuilders in the smooth development of emergency towing procedures to be entered in the Emergency Towing Booklet (ETB). Shipowners, shipbuilders, towing companies, a classification society and the Japanese Government participated in the project. 6 In developing an example of ETB, the requirements of the Convention and the guidelines were scrutinized to understand what and how information should be included in the ETB, taking into account actual emergency situations. Careful attention was paid both to compliance to the requirements and to practicability of preparing ETBs. 7 A sample form for emergency towing procedures would also be beneficial not only for shipowners to prepare emergency towing procedures but also for towing companies to easily understand each ship’s towing procedure in emergency situation. In view of this, a sample form was also prepared. 8 The developed example as well as the sample form of ETB are set out in annexes 1 and 2 to this document, respectively. Action requested of the Sub-Committee 9 The Sub-Committee is invited to note the information set out in the annexes and take action as appropriate. ***
