Interpretation.
In this Regulation, unless the contrary intention appears— “NMSA” means the National Maritime Safety Authority established by the National Maritime Safety Authority Act 2003; “seafarer” means any person who is employed or engaged or works in any capacity on board a ship to which this Regulation applies; “ship” means a ship other than one which navigates exclusively in inland waters or waters within, or closely adjacent to, sheltered waters or areas where port regulations apply; “shipowner” means the owner of the ship or another organization or person, such as the manager, agent or bareboat charterer, who has assumed the responsibility for the operation of the ship from the owner and who, on assuming such responsibility, has agreed to take over the duties and responsibilities imposed on shipowners in accordance with this Regulations, regardless of whether any other organization or persons fulfil certain of the duties or responsibilities on behalf of the shipowner. The requirements of this Regulation that relate to ship construction and equipment apply only to ships constructed on or after the date when this Regulation comes into force. For ships constructed prior to the coming into force of this Regulation, the requirements relating to ship construction and equipment shall be those set out in the Merchant Shipping Act (Chapter No. 242) – Part V – “Crewmen” and Regulations made under that Part. These provisions are set forth in Schedules I to IV of this Regulation and shall continue to apply to the extent that they were applicable prior to the date of the coming into force of this Regulation. A ship shall be deemed to have been constructed on the date when its keel is laid or when it is at a similar stage of construction. Ships that have been imported into Papua New Guinea after the coming into force of this Regulation, will be required, to the extent possible and practicable, to meet the Regulations for accommodation, recreational facilities, mess rooms, galleys, washrooms and toilet facilities, and store rooms specified in this Regulation at the discretion of the NMSA.

The owners of Papua New Guinea ships shall ensure that their ships meet minimum standards to ensure that any accommodation for seafarers, working or living on board, or both, is safe, reasonably spacious, clean and hygienic and in accordance with the relevant provisions of this Regulation. Ships to which this Regulation applies shall be periodically inspected by the NMSA to ensure initial and ongoing compliance with these provisions. The inspections referred to in Subsection (3) of this Section shall be a ship is registered or re-registered; or the seafarer accommodation on a ship has been substantially altered. Inspections referred to in Subsection (3) of this Section shall take into account health and safety protection and accident prevention, in light of the specific needs of seafarers that both live and work on board ship. The NMSA shall pay particular attention to ensuring implementation of the requirements of this Regulation relating to: the size of rooms and other accommodation spaces; noise and vibration and other ambient factors; hospital accommodation (if required to be provided).

In circumstances of exceptional necessity, the NMSA may issue a dispensation permitting a non-fully qualified cook to serve in a specified ship for a
specified limited period, until the next convenient port of call or for a period not
exceeding one month, provided that the person to whom the dispensation is issued is
trained or instructed in areas including food and personal hygiene as well as handling

This information should be made available, free of charge or at reasonable cost, to manufacturers of and traders in ships’ food supplies and equipment, masters, stewards and cooks, and to shipowners’ and seafarers’ organizations. Appropriate forms of publicity, such as manuals, brochures, posters, charts or advertisements in trade journals, should be used for this purpose. The NMSA should issue recommendations to avoid wastage of food, facilitate the maintenance of a proper hygiene regime aboard ship, and ensure the maximum practicable convenience in working arrangements. The NMSA should work in close cooperation with the shipowners’ and seafarers’ organizations concerned and with national or local authorities dealing with questions of food and health, and may where necessary utilize the services of such authorities.
