What is the Naval Ship Code?

The Naval Ship Code (ANEP-77) provides a framework for a naval surface ship safety management system based on and benchmarked against IMO conventions and resolutions.

The Naval Ship Code is developed and supported by a group consisting of navies and classification societies, the International Naval Safety Association (INSA). UK MoD is one of the founding members of INSA. The Naval Ship Code and further information regarding INSA is available from the INSA website:

The Naval Ship Code covers:

  • Structures
  • Buoyancy and Stability
  • Engineering Systems
  • Fire Safety
  • Escape, Evacuation and Rescue
  • Radio-communications
  • Safety of Navigation
  • Dangerous Goods

NSASS supports UK MoD development of and feedback on Naval Ship Code chapters for submission to INSA for consideration. The proposals for changes to the code generated by other members of INSA are reviewed by NSASS for coherency with the framework.
