Singapore has conveyed its acceptance of the amendments to the Convention on the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The declaration of acceptance was presented by Mr Teo Eng Dih, Chief Executive of the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) to Mr Kitack Lim, Secretary-General of the IMO on 30 November 2022.

The amendments to the IMO Convention, which were adopted by the IMO Assembly on 8 December 2021, expand the size of the IMO Council from 40 to 52 Members; extend the term of its Council Members from two to four years; and recognise three additional language texts as authentic versions of the IMO Convention.

Mr Teo said, “Singapore supports the proposed amendments to the IMO Convention. These amendments recognise and reflect the need to build a more inclusive international maritime community to collectively address our common challenges. Singapore looks forward to fellow IMO Member States accepting these amendments.”

Singapore has been a member of the IMO Council since 1993. As an IMO Council member, Singapore has played an active role in the organisation to advance the interests of the international maritime community, including to enhance navigational safety, promote efficient and sustainable shipping, and protect the marine environment.
