Project Description

In cases, where particular circumstances or factors signify an increased risk to the tow, or where the risk cannot be evaluated on the basis of seafaring and nautical knowledge and experience alone, the owner of the towing vessel, owner(s) of the towed object or the towing master/tug master should apply for survey in accordance with MSC/Circ.884 Guidelines for Safe Ocean Towing, dated 21 December 1998 or by a competent organization or authority, as appropriate.
