Services and Operating Scheme

The center works on establishment and prepare equipment and support tools, such as:

  • Database of internal and external experts and investigators in marine accidents,
  • To facilitate access to information to support decision-making by appointing appropriate investigators on a case-by-case basis. This is based on experiences and specialization.

The web page is to facilitate the following:

  • creating an electronic communication channel with Maritime Administrations from the contracting countries,
  • Ease of circulating information and announcing the services provided to the contracting countries and for reporting, if necessary.
