Organization: Shipping is perhaps the most international of all the
world's great industries and one of the most dangerous. It has always been
recognized that the best way of improving safety at sea is by developing
international regulations that are followed by all shipping nations and
from the mid-19th century onwards a number of such treaties were adopted.
Several countries proposed that a permanent international body should be
established to promote maritime safety more effectively, but it was not
until the establishment of the United Nations itself that these hopes were
realized. In 1948 an international conference in Geneva adopted a convention
formally establishing IMO (the original name was the Inter-Governmental
Maritime Consultative Organization, or IMCO, but the name was changed in
1982 to IMO). The purposes of the Organization, as summarized by Article
1(a) of the Convention, are "to provide machinery for cooperation among
Governments in the field of governmental regulation and practices relating
to technical matters of all kinds affecting shipping engaged in international
trade; to encourage and facilitate the general adoption of the highest practicable
standards in matters concerning maritime safety, efficiency of navigation
and prevention and control of marine pollution from ships". The Organization
is also empowered to deal with administrative and legal matters related
to these purposes.
