  1. The Maritime Safety Committee, at its eighty-seventh session (12 to 21 May 2010), acknowledging a that list of codes, recommendations, guidelines and other safety- and security-related non-mandatory instruments could serve the following purposes:

    1. enhanced awareness of available non-mandatory instruments and of their updates;

    2. promotion of implementation of non-mandatory instruments by Member States;

    3. provision of background material on domestic legislation; and

    4. assistance in the identification of potential areas for technical co-operation, approved the list of codes, recommendations, guidelines and other safety- and security-related non-mandatory instruments, as set out in the annex.

  2. Member Governments are invited to bring the list to the attention of all parties concerned.
