Regional Webinars on Fishing Vessel Safety

A series of webinars promoting the importance of the 2012 Cape Town Agreement on fishing vessel safety are taking place in 2021. Organized by IMO, in cooperation with The Pew Charitable Trusts, the webinars provide a platform to get more insight into the Agreement and share lessons learned from States that have already ratified the Agreement, or are currently in the process of doing so.

The objective of the series is to maintain the momentum of the Ministerial Conference, held in Torremolinos, Spain in October 2019. By sharing lessons learned by States that have already ratified the Agreement, or are currently in the process of doing so, the webinars will help to identify any barriers that hinder progress towards the widespread acceptance and effective implementation of the Agreement.

The 2012 Cape Town Agreement (hereinafter the Agreement), adopted by a

Diplomatic Conference, under the auspices of the International Maritime

Organization (IMO), provides standards on the design, construction and equipment of fishing vessels and includes regulations designed to protect the safety of crews and observers, and provide a level playing field for the industry.

 Further details of the Agreement we will publish in our next issue.
