IACS has recently completed a review of Volume 2 of its Procedures concerning Requirements for Membership of IACS. This has resulted in a substantial revision and so this document has now been classified as Issue 2 of Volume 2.
Issue of 2 of Volume 2 of the IACS Procedures will enter into force on the 1st January 2018 but is being published on the IACS Website now to allow interested parties time to consider the new requirements for Membership before they take effect.
Until the 1st January 2018 the existing requirements in Volume 2 of the IACS Procedures will continue to apply, including the procedure to apply for recognition as a ‘Classification Society’ by IACS as is required for participation in the IACS Technical Contributions Forum.
