Module 2C: Subdivision & Stability

Scope of training

It is an International Maritime Organization (IMO) requirement, through the International Conference of Load Lines, 1966, Annex 1, that the Master of a ship should be supplied with a loading and stability information booklet.

This booklet identifies typical service conditions for loading, unloading and ballasting operations to ensure that the ship maintains its normal operating condition and does not incur any damage. This is known as ‘Intact Stability’.
