The RMI Maritime Administrator (the “Administrator”) conducts marine safety investigations of marine casualties and incidents to promote the safety of life and property at sea and to promote the prevention of pollution. Marine safety investigations do not seek to apportion blame or determine liability and are conducted according to the IMO Casualty Investigation Code with the objective of preventing marine casualties and marine incidents in the future.
Investigations focus on a number of issues, including but not limited to: marine casualties and marine incidents involving RMI flagged vessels, such as a fire or explosion, grounding, blackout or loss of propulsion, etc.; on board injuries and fatalities involving RMI documented seafarers and third-party employees; alleged contraventions of the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL); and pollution incidents.
