Resolutions are published in the final report of the Committee meeting during which they were adopted. They may appear as an Annex to the meeting report. Document symbols for resolutions include the resolution number and session information. For example,
MEPC.209(63) refers to MEPC Resolution number 209 which was adopted during the 63rd session of the Marine Environment Protection Committee. Resolutions are listed by number, the most recent resolution (highest number) to the earliest resolution (lowest number).
From 2000 to the present, IMODOCS allows access to IMO official documents. Registration is required to access IMODOCS.
It is not always possible to ascertain the current status of resolutions. We recommend you consult your national maritime administration which is the appropriate channel for dissemination of IMO information.
