Herbert-ABS to Conduct an ABS Academy Seminar on MEPC66 Changes to Tanker Damage Stability Compliance in Athens


IMO adopted guidelines and applicable IMO Code amendments for the mandatory carriage of damage stability verification instruments onboard new and existing tankers. The entry into force date is 1 January 2016 with existing ships having to comply by the first renewal survey after this date and no later than 1 January 2021.
Through the CargoMax™ software, participants will get the opportunity to learn about how Operators can achieve regulatory compliance, utilizing state-of-the-art algorithms, at the press of a button. This is achieved whilst complying with the ship’s requirements for strength, intact stability, propeller emergence, visibility, freeboard and maximum deadweight.

This complimentary Seminar will be held at the Metropolitan Hotel, 385 Syngrou Ave. 175 64 Athens, Greece on May 2, 2017 from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. To register, please contact Luca Letizia at
