Port State Control Performance and Analysis

In 1996, IMO adopted another completely revised version of Chapter III of SOLAS. The new chapter, and a new International Life-Saving Appliance (LSA) Code with specific technical requirements, entered into force on 1 July 1998 and applies to all ships built on or after that date.
