Experts from a dozen countries analyzed the issue of maritime safety in Panama with a view to presenting proposals on the issue of the International Maritime Organization (IMO), one of the organizers reported today.

Panama hosted the meeting for three days, with the participation of representatives of the Central American country and of Germany, Australia, Canada, China, Denmark, Italy, Japan, Norway, the United Kingdom and Panama, said on Thursday the International Maritime University of Panama (UMIP). 

The participants in the meeting are members of the Maritime Safety Commission (ISO / TC8 / SCI) of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), and analyzed the technical and regulatory aspects of safety at sea, protection and fight against fires on ships.

Although the standards related to life-saving equipment, fire protection and the safety of ships were discussed, the highlight was the creation of more specific standards for the manufacture of the ladders used for boarding ships of captains and officials on the high seas, said a statement from the University.

"According to the participants in the debate, these devices are a serious problem that threatens the security of access to the ship and affects pilots around the world," it added.

Panama has the largest ship registry in the world, with more than 8,000 registered ships, around 18 percent of the world fleet.
