WISTA USA PNW – Lunch & Learn: Polar Code

March 1, 2019

March 1, 12-1:30, Holland America Group, 450 3rd Ave W, Seattle, WA

Our next Lunch & Learn will be next Friday, March 1 with our new PNW Chapter Co-President Sarah Burroughs from Global Diving & Salvage speaking on the Polar Code – A Salvor’s Perspective.

The polar code was adopted by the IMO in 2014 for ships operating in polar waters.  This new regulation is a milestone to protect ships and the people aboard them.  However, if a catastrophic event takes place, what are some of the salvage and considerations that need to be taken into account?    Global’s Compliance Manager will provide an overview of the polar code, safety, and risks associated with a response in arctic waters.

To register for this session, please RSVP to wistapnw@gmail.com by COB, February 27th with any dietary restrictions.
