Putting the 2012 Cape Town Agreement on fishing vessel safety into force by 11 October 2022

Mr. Kitack Lim,

IMO says it has moved “a significant step closer” to realising “a global regime to create much-needed safety standards for fishing vessels”, following a strong show of support for the Cape Town Agreement at its international ministerial conference, hosted in Torremolinos

The IMO-led conference saw 48 states sign the Torremolinos Declaration, an indication of commitment to putting the 2012 Cape Town Agreement on fishing vessel safety into force by 11 October 2022. This number includes states who have not yet ratified the Agreement but intend to do so – among them the UK, Finland and China – as well as states that have ratified the Agreement, such as France, Iceland, Norway, Spain and South Africa. These latter-category states have used the Torremolinos Declaration as a means of signalling their commitment to promoting the entry into force of the Agreement.
