Maritime Autonomous Systems Conference 2019
The Maritime Autonomous Systems (MAS) conference gave delegates the chance to hear and discuss the key points of interest with regard to the Scoping Exercise and the latest Code of Practice for autonomous surface vessels.
The international group included legislators, high level end-user organisations, technology and industry leaders from the UK, EU, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, India, Japan, Korea, USA.
The Maritime Safety Committee at the International Maritime Organization (IMO) have now formed the MASS Working and Correspondence Groups who have started their scoping exercise work. The UK MAS Regulatory Working Group (MASRWG) released Version 2 of the UK Code of Practice in November 2018.
