Chapter Summary

The most important concern maritime administrations confront with a request for refuge is certainly the question of what happens if the endangered ship cannot be assisted anymore and develops into a total loss while at the place of refuge and in vicinity of the coastline. This chapter undertakes a general review of the current practice of granting refuge and implications for risk assessment. It addresses the purposes of risk assessment and kinds of methodologies used. The chapter considers international standards and guidelines that are related to the decision-making process and risk assessment for granting refuge to ships in distress. It addresses the kind of guidance provided for the development of national approaches to deal with decision- making and risk assessment for places of refuge, and investigates national approaches to these issues.
