1 The Maritime Safety Committee, at its eighty-eighth session (24 November to 3 December 2010), when adopting amendments to SOLAS regulation V/23 (resolution MSC.308(88)), approved a unified interpretation of SOLAS regulation V/23 concerning the installation date of pilot transfer equipment and arrangements, stipulated in paragraph 1.2 of the regulation, as follows:
.1 for ships for which the building contract is placed on or after 1 July 2012, or in the absence of the contract, constructed on or after 1 July 2012, "installed on or after 1 July 2012" means any installation on the ship; and
.2 for ships other than those ships prescribed in .1 above, "installed on or after 1 July 2012" means installation of the equipment and arrangements not covered by paragraph 1.4 of regulation V/23 on the ship on or after 1 July 2012.
2 Member Governments are invited to use the above interpretation when applying SOLAS regulation V/23 and to bring it to the attention of all parties concerned.
