Designed to complement the globally recognised ICS Bridge Procedures Guide, the Engine Room Procedures Guide from the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) provides authoritative and comprehensive guidance on engine room procedures, to ensure that engine rooms are operated and managed safely. This new publication is relevant to all merchant ships, and will be invaluable to Chief Engineers and members of the engineering team, as well as shipping companies and training institutions.
The new ICS Guide is an essential reference tool which reinforces established best practices. It is strongly recommended that a copy is carried on board every merchant ship.
The Engine Room Procedures Guide sets out routine engine room procedures and also includes useful checklists for the ship’s engineering team. It provides clear guidance on safe and environmentally responsible engine room operations and maintenance, supporting internationally agreed standards and recommendations adopted by the International Maritime Organization
