Imo Agreements

Subject to the Assembly`s agreement, the Organization may, by a two-thirds majority, cede the organization of all other international organizations, governmental or non-governmental, functions, resources and obligations under the Organization that may be transferred to the Organization by international agreements or by agreements acceptable to both parties between the competent authorities of these organizations. Similarly, the Organization can carry out all the administrative tasks within its scope that have been entrusted to a government under an international instrument. The creation of IMO coincided with a period of significant change in the global maritime sector and the organization worked from the outset to develop new conventions and ensure that existing instruments were at the same pace as changes in maritime technology. It is now responsible for more than 50 international conventions and agreements and has adopted numerous protocols and amendments. Since its inception, IMO has been working to formulate and promote new conventions and update existing conventions on maritime safety and pollution. Most of the conventions adopted by IMO are generally divided into three main categories: maritime safety, pollution prevention and liability and compensation, particularly with regard to pollution damage. There are other minor conventions that deal with facilities, tonnage measurement, illegal activities against navigation and rescue, etc. Currently, IMO is responsible for implementing and promoting more than 50 international conventions and agreements on security, pollution and other maritime issues. These international rules must be respected by all maritime nations in order to improve the safety and environment of shipping.

The Council may enter into agreements or arrangements regarding the Organization`s relations with other organizations, as stipulated in Part XV. These agreements or agreements are subject to assembly approval. Provide for the development of appropriate conventions, agreements or other instruments, recommend them to governments and intergovernmental organizations and, where appropriate, convene conferences; Members may at any time specify that their participation in the convention includes any or all of the territories for which they are responsible. The Convention does not apply to territories whose international relations fall under the jurisdiction of members, unless a declaration has been made on their behalf on their behalf in accordance with point (a) of this article.
