Non-Compliant Ships Banned

      9/20/1999

Britain has recently warned shipowners that vessels calling at British ports could be detained if they have not ironed out millennium bug problems. The Maritime and Coastguard Agency said ships' power, steering or navigational equipment could fail because of the bug, which is expected to cause electronic systems to crash because they cannot process the millennium date change.

From September 1, ships that have not identified equipment that could fail or taken remedial action will be recorded in a European database and be targeted for further inspection. From November 1, ships without a millennium contingency plan, including crew members to implement it, will have to demonstrate they can operate safely. All ships inspected before January 1, 2000 which have still not tackled the risk and which will be at sea at the turn of the millennium will be detained until they can show they will not be a threat to safety or the environment, the agency said.
