The purpose of the Polar Code is to enhance the safety of ships operating in the harsh and remote polar waters, while also minimizing any negative impacts on the environment and people in the area. This code was created as a supplement to existing IMO instruments. It applies to existing ships starting in 2018 and new ships from 2017.

Polar Code, 2016 Edition (I191E)


The Code acknowledges that polar water operation may impose navigational demands beyond the existing requirements of SOLAS, MARPOL and any relevant binding IMO instruments. The key principles for developing the Polar Code have been to use a risk based approach in determining scope and to adopt a holistic approach in reducing risks. Detail is given on ship structure to ensure integrity is retained in ice conditions and during both global and structural loads. Although the Code is intended to apply to both Arctic and Antarctic waters, the legal and geographical differences between the two areas have been taken into account.
