The IMO-Vega Database is an essential tool for anyone involved in shipping: ship-owners and operators, shipbuilders, classification societies, casualty investigators, governments, insurers and underwriters, port authorities, surveyors and many others.

IMO-Vega, developed jointly by IMO and Det Norske Veritas (DNV), puts all the necessary information at your fingertips. Given year of build, ship type, ship size, cargo and trade area, IMO-Vega will quickly identify the requirements applicable to the ship in question.

Unlike other, similar products, IMO-Vega contains historical data including regulations which have been superseded. In the context of Port State Control, for example, access to the correct historical regulations is essential.

The database includes the latest texts (up to and including October 2018) of IMO requirements such as the following, but not limited to:

-1974 SOLAS Convention, including 1978 and 1988 Protocols and all amendments
-1966 Load Lines Convention, including 1988 Protocol and all amendments
-MARPOL, including all amendments
-1978 and 1995 STCW Convention and Code, with amendments
-1972 Collision Regulations
-1969 Tonnage Convention
-2004 Ballast Water Management Convention
