IMO ADOPTED NEW POLAR CODE
INDUSTRY VIEW ON NAVIGATION SYSTEM IMPLICATIONS
Trends and forecasts indicate that polar shipping will grow over the coming years -a challenge for navigation systems.
Ship travel in Arctic waters is especially dangerous; nevertheless, ship traffic in polar waters has increased in recent years. The IMO has now developed new obligatory regulations under the title “Polar Code”, in order to better protect ships, crews and also the polar environment in the future.
