Recommendations

 

IACS produces recommendations and guidelines related to adopted resolutions that are not necessarily matters of  class but which IACS considers would be helpful to offer some advice to the marine industry.  The documents cover a wide range of issues and can be accessed via the links below.

The technical backgrounds (development histories) of Recommendations since 2006 can be found by following this link.

A list of the IACS working groups responsible for each Guideline and Recommendation may be found here.
