Stockholm Agreement—Past, Present, Future (Part 2)
Abstract:This paper provides a succinct summary of the findings ensuing the undertaking of a dedicated EU-funded research project aiming to address the impact of the Stockholm Agreement (SA) on the EU Ro-Ro passenger ships. This is achieved by utilizing the experience gained, the data and knowledge accumulated through the adoption of the Stockholm Agreement in North West Europe to form the basis for predicting the likely impact of introducing this Agreement to vessels operating in EU waters not covered yet by it. The background, including a historical overview and a detailed introspective look at the SA, together with an assessment of its impact on passenger Ro-Ro ship safety standards, design and operation are presented in a companion paper (Part 1) in the July 2002 issue of MARINE TECHNOLOGY.
