MSA accepts the intent of this recommendation, but not the specific requirements of the issue of Maritime Notice, as in our view there are better methods to communicate with a wider cross section of industry and specific sectors, other than a Marine Notice. MSA will arrange such communication in its publications and correspondence with Safe Ship Management (SSM) companies.
