IMO-Vega is an essential tool for anyone involved in shipping: ship-owners and operators, shipbuilders, classification societies, casualty investigators, governments, insurers and underwriters, port authorities, surveyors and many others.
The IMO-Vega database, developed by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and DNV AS, puts all the necessary information on safety and pollution prevention requirements applicable to ships at your fingertips. Unlike other, similar, products, IMO-Vega contains historical data – including regulations which have been superseded. Version 25 builds on the success of previous versions, adding further texts and enhancing the power of the database. The database also contains safety related documents issued by IMO such as circulars, resolutions, etc.
The application allows for search by applicable regulations according to the following criteria:
• ship type and date of build
• ship-specific conventions and codes
• cargo type
• length and number of passengers
• gross tonnage and deadweight
• topics and trade
