According to ICLL its required to have a coaming around any doors leading from a superstructure to the outside deck.
My question (as I am unfamiliar with maritime regulations and such) Is how are vessels that follow ICLL or Llyod’s able to get around these regulations?
From what I can understand is it is possible to be exempted from an ICLL code if your country has some form of Marine Techinicle Review Board that allows you to be exempted.
Another question is if a cruise ship does get an exemption, what is their argument that justifies being exempted from having (for an example) door coamings?
Any information or places I can go to read up more about this would be greatly appricated.
