On 5 June 2020, the Commission received a response to the recommendation stating Shih Wei Navigation Company Limited had since issued a circular to their fleet - ‘E-Circular 20-11 - Attention for the lashing of timber loading on deck and risk assessment’.

The Commission notes that the response was not from Shih Wei Navigation Company Limited but from the new management company of the vessel, Oceanlance Maritime Co, Limited. As Shih Wei Navigation Company Limited remains the beneficial owner of Coresky OL, and continues to operate similar vessels, the Commission’s recommendation remains directed at Shih Wei Navigation Company Limited.
