Overview

Laws, Rules and Regulations are the tools, through which Policies are being implemented. In the shipping industry, IMO is the main Policy Maker globally but its resolutions have to become national laws, in order to be applied. Other Maritime Policy Makers (through establishment of Rules and Regulations) are the European Union, the USA and other major countries.
But regarding Rules and Regulations these are not the only ones. International Organisations (ILO, ISO) and Industry Organisations (OCIMF, RightShip) are also key players both in establishing regulations and ensuring compliance with them.
