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.

The purpose of the Arctic Shipping Best Practice Information Forum is to support effective implementation of the Polar Code by making publicly available on a dedicated web portal, information relevant to all those involved in safe and environmentally sound Arctic shipping, including vessels owners/operators, regulators, classification societies, marine insurers, and indigenous and local communities.

The Forum will place particular emphasis on collecting information of use to maritime administrations and/or Recognized Organizations in issuing Polar Ship Certificates (PSC) and conducting Operational Assessments, as well as information to be used by the shipowners and operators in developing Polar Water Operational Manual (PWOM).

CHAPTER SUMMARY
This chapter is designed to ensure that the company, master and crew are provided with sufficient information to enable operations to be conducted with due consideration to the safety of ships and persons on board and, as appropriate, environmental protection. These considerations  need to be referenced in the Polar Waters Operational Manual. By way of example they include, but are not limited to, issues such as Notices to mariners that are ordinarily contained in government publications. These are clearly set out in the Chapter 11 wording below, and in the Part 1B Additional Guidance.
