Despite efforts made by governments and international organizations like IMO to tighten regulatory measures, substandard ships and shipping-related practices continue to flourish. Serious ship accidents continue to occur and reports on abuse of seafarers are on the rise as the industry becomes more and more competitive and crews become increasingly multinational. The independent four-member International Commission on Shipping has conducted an in-depth study of the current practices of governments and shipping industry in the light of existing international rules and standards, and presented its findings with a number of recommendations to improve the situation. This article summarises the highlights of the Commission's report focusing mainly on those issues which are related to legal and institutional aspects.
