NATO - ANEP-77 PART 3
NAVAL SHIP CODE: JUSTIFICATION & GUIDANCE
|Publication Date:||19 July 2019|
Purpose of the Code
Requirements for this Section are contained in Part 1.
Recognising that there is no naval body that is equivalent to IMO and that naval ships are not embraced by the work of IMO, NATO nations and their partners established a NATO Specialist Team to develop a "Naval Ship Code" (the Code). When the Specialist Team was disbanded, the International Naval Safety Association (INSA) was formed to manage the Code and to continue its development.
This Chapter and the subsequent Chapters in Part 3 describe:
• How the Code is constructed and the principles used in its design;
• How the Code is managed by the INSA and published by NATO;
• The background to, and how to use, each of the Code's chapters and parts.
