INFORMATION ON LOCAL REGULATIONS
1 The Maritime Safety Committee, at its eighty-sixth session (27 May to 5 June 2009), endorsed the decision of DSC 13 that an appropriate way to disseminate information on local regulations is to maintain this information in GISIS and to issue an MSC circular informing entities of the availability of such information in GISIS.
2 In pursuance of the decision of MSC 86, the Secretariat has developed a module in GISIS for the dissemination of information on local regulations, as provided by Member Governments.
3 Having noted that the corresponding GISIS module had already been set up by the Secretariat, the Committee at its eighty-seventh session (12 to 21 May 2010) approved this circular.
4 Member Governments are invited to bring the content of the circular to the attention of all interested parties.
