This article reviews the work of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) with regard to the adoption of international rules on safety of navigation and prevention of marine pollution. The recommendatory IMO Guidelines for Ships Operating in Arctic Ice-Covered Waters are discussed. The relationship between coastal State legislation under Article 234 of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea and the main IMO safety and anti-pollution treaties is analyzed. It concludes that the former should neither contradict nor overlap with the latter.

Affiliations: 1: Senior Deputy Director, Legal Affairs, International Maritime Organization (IMO)
