Throughout the development of the IMO Polar Code it was recognized that there is a need for
ships operating in Polar waters to maintain comprehensive documentation that provides the
owner, operator, master, and crew with sufficient guidance on operational safety in the anticipated
environmental conditions and how to respond to any incidents that may arise. Chapter 2 of the
Polar Code mandates that all ships have a Polar Water Operational Manual (PWOM) onboard in
order to support the decision-making processes during operations.
We can assist you with the development of the PWOM based on an initial risk assessment on board.
We have experiance from most of the Clasification Societies and have developed PWOM for many different
types of vessels such as, AHTS, Ice breakers, Passenger vessels, Expedition Cruise, Tankers and Yacht.
