The International Safety Guide for Oil Tankers and Terminals (ISGOTT) has been reviewed, enhanced and refreshed to ensure that it continues to reflect current best practice and legislation and, as a result, will maintain its position as a definitive reference for the safe operation of oil tankers and the marine terminals they visit.
The Sixth Edition of ISGOTT has been published today, and is available to purchase here: https://bit.ly/2AZKkJx
This revision of ISGOTT updates and replaces the prior Fifth Edition that was published in 2006 and has been reviewed by OCIMF and the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) together with the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH), and a wide range of subject matter experts.
The authors believe that ISGOTT Sixth Edition continues to provide the best technical guidance on oil tanker and terminal operations. All operators are urged to ensure that the recommendations in this guide are not only read and fully understood but are also followed through their Safety Management Systems (SMSs) and procedures.
