Chapter 2:

pwom

CHAPTER SUMMARY
Chapter 2 describes content to be included in the Polar Water Operational Manual (PWOM), a mandatory ship-specific document designed to support decision making through the identification of procedures for operations under routine and emergency conditions. The PWOM must contain references to methodologies used to determine capabilities and limitations of a vessel in ice. The Regulations require that vessels develop and carry a PWOM on board, and require that a variety of risk-based procedures are to be taken into consideration. These are clearly set out in the Chapter 2 wording below, and in the Part 1B Additional Guidance.
