IMO-Vega is a searchable database. It uses the regulation text of the SOLAS, MARPOL, Load Line and other conventions, as well as codes such as ISM, ISPS, 2000 HSC Code, IBC Code and many more. The new release of the IMO-Vega database is extended with the renewal of the Polar Code, which is now also mandatory in MARPOL. This was introduced in the previous version already when it was made mandatory in SOLAS.
Under “Trade” further “Particularly Sensitive Sea Areas” have been added to advanced search feasibility and several guidelines (e.g. on EEDI and exhaust gas cleaning) were adopted or amended by MEPC at its 68th meeting. Also, the adopted IGF Code has been included, and the IMSBC Code and the GMDSS Manual have been updated.
All updated documents are included and consolidated into existing instruments, if relevant. IMO instruments are provided with links to content inside the specific instrument for better usability.
