This is the result of a survey made by the Danish Maritime Authority according to an article on the website of Danish Maritime Officers.
“The IMO conventions are a signal that there are some areas we are interested in being able to control and the conventions provide us with some very important guiding points”, Managing Director of the Danish Maritime Authority, Andreas Nordseth told at the Lean Ship of the Future workshop. The workshop, focusing on the growing administrative burden on ships, is arranged ahead of the annual general meeting of the IFSMA, taking place on Friday hosted by Danish Maritime Officers.
