Code of Safety for Caribbean Cargo Ships (CCSS Code)

The Code of Safety for Caribbean Cargo Ships (CCSS Code) was adopted by the Final Preparatory and Signatory Meeting on Port State Control for the Caribbean Region on February 5 – 9, 1996. On 29 January, 1997 the Caribbean Port State Control Committee adopted amendments to the CCSS Code.

The Code applies to sea-going Dominica ships of less than 500 gross tons but above 24m in length, engaged in voyages in the Caribbean Trading Area, with the exception of passenger ships, fishing vessels and pleasure craft. The provisions of this Code help facilitate the operation of vessels to which certain international conventions are not applicable and therefore should ensure a level of security for the ship and the crew.
