UK Ranks 1st on Paris MOU Whitelist

Katy Ware – Director of Maritime Safety & Standards, Directorate of Maritime Safety & Standards

The United Kingdom is officially the highest performing Flag under the Paris MOU Port State Control regime.

In the Paris MoU Committee list published today (1 July 2020), the UK heads the White List which is based on the total number of inspections and detentions over a three-year rolling period for flags which have had at least 30 inspections in the period.

Katy Ware, director of maritime safety and standards, as well as being the UK’s Permanent Representative to the International Maritime Organization said it was good news for all those who had worked hard to maintain UK standards.

She said: “This shows that what you put in, you get out. We’ve worked with industry to improve those standards and our surveyors continue to apply them at high levels.

“It’s a great moment to see our name at the top of the list and we will continue to strive to make sure our standards remain at this same high level.’

ABS CONFIRMED AS PLATINUM SPONSOR OF LISW21

PRESS RELEASE

ABS CONFIRMED AS PLATINUM SPONSOR OF LISW21

LONDON: JUNE 4, 2020: The organisers of London International Shipping Week are proud to announce that American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) has signed up as a Platinum Sponsor of London International Shipping Week 2021 (LISW21).

ABS is a leading provider of classification services to the global offshore and marine industries and is guided by its mission to promote security of life, property and the natural environment.

LISW21, which will be held in the week of September 13-17, 2021, has already received the support of over 100 international shipping trade associations together with the UK Government, Royal Navy and the UK domestic shipping and maritime sectors.

It promises to be an occasion of global proportions, with the number of events expected to exceed the 220 held during LISW19, meaning visitor numbers are expected to be higher than the 20,000 who attended last year.

Welcoming ABS onboard, Llewellyn Bankes-Hughes, Director of Shipping Innovation, paid tribute to ABS’ continued support of LISW.

“The success of LISW is, in no uncertain terms, due to the overwhelming support of our valued Sponsors and Supporting Organisations and ABS is no exception to this. We have worked very closely with our friends at ABS for many years now and look forward to connecting with their team once again to ensure LISW21 is even more of a success for them than ever before.”

For the first time, LISW will run industry events throughout the five days of the week as opposed to keeping the Thursday free just for the headline LISW Conference and Gala Dinner. This will give Supporting Organisations and Sponsors more freedom of choice when it comes to planning their events.

GLOBAL SHIPPING INDUSTRY LOOKS FORWARD TO LISW21 AS SEPTEMBER DATE IS CONFIRMED

 

LONDON: MAY 4, 2020: Preparatory work to deliver a London International Shipping Week in 2021 that will be even more relevant and internationally-focused than ever before is well underway as London and the UK look to a trading future outside of the EU and an industry free of the economic constraints imposed by this year’s Coronavirus pandemic.

LISW21, which will be held in the week of September 13-17, 2021, has already received the support of over 100 international shipping trade associations together with the UK Government, Royal Navy and the UK domestic shipping and maritime sectors.

It promises to be an occasion of global proportions, with the number of events expected to exceed the 220 held during LISW19, meaning visitor numbers are expected to be higher than the 20,000 who attended last year.

John Hulmes, Chairman of the LISW21 Steering Group, said: “This year’s international shipping events calendar has been adversely affected by the Coronavirus pandemic with many shipping weeks cancelled or postponed. LISW21 will be one of the first major opportunities shipping industry leaders will have to meet and network again in safety.

“That is why the LISW21 Steering Group and Board of Advisors are pulling out all the stops to ensure that LISW21 is more relevant and international that ever before,” he added.

For the first time, LISW will run industry events throughout the five days of the week as opposed to keeping the Thursday free just for the headline LISW Conference and Gala Dinner. This will give Supporting Organisations and Sponsors more freedom of choice when it comes to planning their events,” he added.
