7B Joint Industry - Government Guidelines for the control of Oil Tankers and Bulk Chemical Carriers in the Ice Control Zones of Eastern Canada (JIGs) TP15163


These Guidelines apply to all laden oil tankers and to tankers carrying liquid chemicals in bulk when proceeding through an active Ice Control Zone in Eastern Canadian waters and fishing zones south of 60° North. The Canadian Coast Guard may declare any ice control zone to be an active Ice Control Zone and promulgate this information via Notice to Shipping and Notices to Mariners. When proceeding through an active Ice Control Zone, all ships to which the Guidelines apply should, have on board at least one "Ice Advisor", who meets the requirements as prescribed in JIGs.http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/marinesafety/tp-tp15163-menu-4025.htm
