In July 2007, IMO adopted amendments to SOLAS by resolution MSC216(82) which mandated compliance with the new IMO "Performance Standard for Protective Coatings for dedicated seawater ballast tanks in all types of ships and double-side skin spaces of bulk carriers", (IMO PSPC; Resolution MSC 215(82)). Compliance with the IMO PSPC is required by the IACS Common Structural Rules for Bulk Carriers and for Oil Tankers, which were implemented in December 2006. This paper reviews work that is being undertaken to improve the safety of ships by looking at new ways in which structural design can be improved to gain the optimum benefit of modern coating materials, surface preparation and application technology.
