About Marine Order 12 and the proposed changes
Marine Order 12 (Construction – subdivision and stability, machinery and electrical installations) (MO12) relates to the prescribed international standards for the structure, subdivision, stability, machinery, and electrical installations of regulated Australian vessels (RAVs) and foreign flagged vessels.
The proposed changes include:
- adding new requirements to give effect to the IMO resolution MSC.474(102), which requires vessels to have a ship-specific towing and mooring arrangements plan, kept on board for the master’s reference.
- introducing new requirements for Regulated Australian Vessels (RAVs) under 24m in length for weathertight and watertight integrities currently not covered by either MO12 or Marine Order 16 (Load lines) 2014.
- updating requirements for openings in watertight bulkheads on cargo ships as required by SOLAS.
