The Ports and Terminals Committee (PTC) held their 87th meeting on 18–19 October in London, UK.
The meeting was hosted by OCIMF and followed a one-day meeting of the Mooring Equipment Guidelines Steering Group. The MEG review was a key topic in the PTC agenda and the technical content was approved to allow the document to progress into the publications review stage. The planning of the next big publication review and update (ISGOTT) was discussed. The target is to start work with the co-authors the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) and the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) in January or February. The PTC also reviewed current and future work commitments and prioritised the plan for the next six months.
The next PTC meeting is scheduled for 18–19 April and will be hosted by Phillips 66 in Singapore.
