(January 1959 - To Date)

The Index of IMO Resolutions provides an indexed guide to the resolutions adopted by the Assembly and other organs of the International Maritime Organization (IMO), as well as those adopted by the Consultative Meetings of Contracting Parties to the London Convention, 1972 (formerly the London Dumping Convention), for which IMO acts as secretariat.

This electronic edition brings the Index up to date - that is, up to and including the latest resolutions of the Assembly (A), the Council (C), the Facilitation Committee (FAL), the Consultative Meeting of Contracting Parties to the London Convention (LC), the Legal (LEG), the London Protocol (LP),  the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC), the Maritime Safety Committee (MSC), and the Technical Cooperation Committee (TC).

Status: where indicated in the text of the resolution, the status has been included; notes on status also originate from the List of codes and recommendations, guidelines and other safety-and- security- related non-mandatory instruments  (MSC.1/Circ.1371 and its updates). It has not always been possible to ascertain the current status of all resolutions and the information given may, therefore, not be complete or current. You are therefore advised to consult your national maritime administration which is the appropriate channel for dissemination of IMO information. You will find addresses on our website under National Contacts.
