  • The number of women seafarers around the world is 2%, and about 30% of women in the shipping industry. International organizations are making efforts in various ways to advance women in the maritime industry. This study provides recent information about the International Maritime Organization(IMO)'s new programme as IMO focuses on women in maritime during 2019, under the World Maritime Day theme "Empowering Women in the Maritime Community".

  • Whereas shipping and Ship-building industries of Korea have been under the direct influence of International Maritime Organization (IMO) conventions and resolutions that aim at maritime safety and the protection of marine environment, it is needed that a specialized institute for dealing with IMO Agenda be established by industry-academy-government collaboration. Accordingly, this study proposes the establishment of a specialized institute to manage the IMO Agenda. To this end, integrating the existing bodies and their functions into a specialized institute, namely, the International Maritime Cooperation Center, is suggested. This center, composed of 40 researchers and operated by the Korea Maritime Institute, could assume this role. This study proceeds by building an estimate of the operational cost of the institute and exploring practical ways to finance it through the private and public sectors, also considering revisions to the Maritime Safety Act to ensure continuous operation of the new institute.

  • As the International Maritime English Organization (IMO) model course for Maritime English has been recently revised and updated, the requirements of current changes to both the 2010 STCW Manila Amendments and English education have been actively reviewed. In order to provide practical guidelines for language teaching, a wide range of new pedagogical approaches and their theoretical backgrounds are also suggested. However, considering the current spread of Business English as a Lingua Franca (BELF) and its critical importance in maritime communication, the pedagogical approaches need to be re-evaluated, specifically in terms of teaching pronunciation in order to emphasize clear and effective communication among international interlocutors. Therefore, the core pedagogical elements of pronunciation should be clearly set and provided with consideration for Lingua Franca Core (LFC), which places importance on mutual intelligibility rather than following the rules of native speakers. In this paper, the current trends of BELF in the maritime industry will thus be introduced. Following this, the importance of LFC in maritime communication will be outlined, and its key features will be discussed in terms of effectiveness and clarity of international maritime communications. Finally, a close comparison between LFC and the pronunciation guidelines suggested by the IMO Maritime English model course 3.17 will be conducted, and pedagogical implications for future teaching pronunciation in cross-cultural global maritime industry will be suggested.

  • The International Maritime Organization(IMO) which is responsible for measures to improve the safety and security of international shipping and to prevent marine pollution from ships is a specialized agency of the United Nations. It is involved in legal matters, including liability and compensation issues and the facilitation of international maritime traffic as well. But the ROK has not been actively coping with the environment of the shipping industry because of the absence of the organization or researching bodies that specialized in the field related to IMO. Therefore this paper investigates the maritime administration system of the major countries such as the USA, japan and the UK. And particularly by conducting IMO research and responding system, this study gathers relevant materials from those countries for the comparison and analysis with the purpose of providing the ROK with the assistance in forming the responding measures in the shipping and shipbuilding industries.

  • In this paper, we analysed the new techniques for maritime mobile communications replacing NBDP in MF/HF bandwidth. Several countries already have contributed to new proposals for new digital systems through international standardization organizations as ITU, IMO and IEC. ITU-R SG8B in ITU reviews the contributed documents and discusses about radio regulations relating new systems. Also COMSAR in IMO reviews member's countries opinions and statues for introducing new techniques and replacing NBDP.

  • Vessel PMS (Planned Maintenance System) is a paper and/or software based system to monitor vessel engine equipment including main propulsion, steering, auxiliary machinery and cargo handling information. This is one of mandatory survey for vessel introduced by IMO (International Maritime Organization). The planned maintenance as well as documentation must be performed according to a system to be approved by classification agencies. Recently, vessel owners have preferred software based systems to collect and preserve accurate data. However, not ship specific and not taking into account the user are said by end users as operational difficulties. To relieve these concerns, this research analyzes vessel PMS data, suggests a middleware to support automatic collection and design consideration of user interface.

  • In this study, we compared and analyzed the Revealed Comparative Advantage (RCA) and Trade Specialization Index (TSI) based on ballast water management systems (BWMS) trade data, which are related to the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Ballast Water Management Convention to suggest the current status of Korea's industrial competitiveness and suggest future development directions for the BWMS industry. As international interest in eco-friendly vessels is expanding, the IMO is engaged in dramatic discussions and agreement-making related to marine emissions of pollutants from ships. IMO member states that must implement this convention are striving to develop technology and secure industrial competitiveness as major industries in the eco-friendly shipping sector, with the BWMS industry experiencing a high market entry barrier and the possibility of the leading market entrants gaining leadership. The Republic of Korea accounts for 17 (approximately 38 %) of the 45 BWMS that received final approval as of October 2019. Based on trade data relating to product codes HS842219, HS84212, and HS89, the RCA index and TSI were calculated and compared. The findings revealed that the Republic of Korea has relative inferiority compared to countries such as Germany and Denmark. Despite this, Korea's favorable industrial environment, which includes several IMO-approved BWMS technologies and the possession of domestic certification institutions, is likely to strengthen its competitiveness in the BWMS market.
