MSC.1/Circ.1209 22 May 2006
INFORMATION ON SIMULATORS AVAILABLE FOR USE IN MARITIME TRAINING
1 The Maritime Safety Committee, at its sixty-third session (16 to 25 May 1994), instructed the Secretariat to compile, from the replies received in response to MSC/Circ.567/Rev.1 (Information Required on Simulators available for use in maritime training), a list of maritime training institutions equipped with simulators, to provide a source of information on availability of such training for use by administrations, shipowners and others. The first list was circulated by MSC/Circ.633 and subsequent information by MSC/Circ.721 and MSC/Circ.852.
2 The Sub-Committee on Standards of Training and Watchkeeping (STW), at its thirty-seventh session (23 to 27 January 2006), noting that many simulators at existing training institutions may have been replaced and new simulators may have been installed at other training institutions, agreed that it was necessary to update the information at an early date.
3 The Maritime Safety Committee, at its eighty-first session (10 to 19 May 2006), endorsed the corresponding request by the Sub-Committee and urged Member Governments to provide the information on the availability of simulators in their training institutions in the format set out in the annex, at an early date, to enable the Secretariat to compile an updated circular.
