MECAL Technical Committee members are involved in the drafting of a new Cargo Ship/Workboat Code which bridges the gap between 24M & 500GT.
The Code is now at an advanced draft stage prior to wider consultation.
MECAL is co-operating with SCMS on this project, which will allow delegation to us of much of the survey & certification work for the large domestic sector i.e. those vessels (other than tankers) that are engaged on non-international voyages. MECAL are in a good place to take on much of this work because of our class society-type QC system & high professional standards.
