Concerning the recommendation made to our Administration in the report into the fatality on board the M/V NEW LEGEND PEARL, we are glad to inform you that we proceeded accordingly and required from the operator a brief summary of the actions taken by them to avoid similar accidents in the future highlighting safety culture improvement and the corresponding evidence (documentation gathered from meetings, fleet circulars, forms, etc.) that proves that such actions are being fully implemented.

We are sure that the operator will be attending our request on the next days and will submit to this office the required evidence.
