Safety Analysis of Data Reported in EMCIP - Analysis on Marine Casualties and Incidents involving Ro-Ro Vessels

  • Published
  • Updated

m cover emcipEMSA has developed a methodology to analyse data reported in the European Marine Casualty Information Platform (EMCIP) with the view to detect potential safety issues. Such a methodology has been applied to conduct an analysis focused on ro-ro vessels, both passenger and cargo, whose occurrences were reported in EMCIP by the MS between 17/06/2011 and 26/04/2018.

The project has been conducted at two levels:

• A high-level analysis of all the reported occurrences, either investigated or not, intending to prepare general statistics and identify possible trends;

• A more detailed analysis on “Accidental Events” (AE), “Contributing Factors” (CF), “Safety Recommendations” (SR) and “Actions Taken” (AT) based on the completed investigations.

Information for EMCIP public users

infoOn September 2018, EMSA has deployed the new EMCIP, directly hosted and managed by the Agency.

In line with the rules agreed with the Member States, the provision of information about marine casualties and incidents for the general public is available in the public section of the EMCIP portal.

Safety publications and other information on EMCIP for public users are also available in the EMCIP portal
