Serious Marine Casualties & Incidents Reduces


Data overview

Comparisons with other data sources indicate that there is still some under-reporting as Member States’ AI bodies progressively implement reporting to EMCIP. However, the increase in numbers of casualties and incidents reported has become proportionally smaller each year, indicating that the system is approaching full implementation. Once that stage is reached, the true yearon-year trends will become more visible. Under-reporting relates mostly to the less serious casualties and incidents, while more serious casualties remained at levels similar to previous years. The chart illustrates this, while noting that the reduction of serious casualties is the consequence of a modification in the classification of injuries, as is the corresponding increase of less serious casualties and incidents.
