Early in June the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) announced the publication of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Guidance, Fourth Edition

This Guidance has been produced by the ICS to help shipping companies and seafarers follow health advice provided by UN agencies and others in response to the coronavirus (Covid-19) disease, which has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO), under the WHO International Health Regulations (IHR).

It is understood that this Guidance is for use on all types of ship and attempts to take into account the needs of both cargo and passenger ships. It is recognised that cargo ships are unlikely to have a fully trained doctor or nurse on board and that medical treatment on cargo ships will be provided by a crew member with training to Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW) medical requirements.

This fourth edition replaces the ICS guidance published in September 2020 and should be read in conjunction with the three Covid-19 guidance documents published by ICS in 2021.

The G7 Summit will take place in Carbis Bay, North Cornwall, in England’s SW from 11 to 13 June.

Leaders of the UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the US will attend the Summit alongside the EU and European Commission Presidents.

Guest nations attend

On 12 June they will be joined by leaders from Australia, South Africa, Republic of Korea and the UN Secretary General. Leaders of international organisations and the Indian Prime Minister will also attend the Summit virtually from that day.

It is reported that Prime Minister Johnston will use Summit in Cornwall next week to ask world leaders to come together to end the coronavirus pandemic

  • World’s leading democracies will discuss ways to increase vaccine supply and support equitable access
  • Tackling climate change and getting more children into school also central themes of UK-hosted summit.

MarSec21+ | The Countdown Begins

Join us for the second instalment of our conference series on the future of port and maritime security. MarSec21+ will bring together key industry leaders from commercial shipping and ports, and cyber security specialists, to delve into the transforming trends, challenges and opportunities in maritime security in the post-COVID world and beyond.

MarSec21+ is a free to attend event and our ambition is to create a dialogue between Company Security Officers, Port and Facility Security Officers, Cyber Information Security Officers, and their management teams with service providers, shipping associations and importantly, our regulators, to give them a voice to engage in a debate on the key issues that shape maritime security.
