The Russian Maritime Register of Shipping (RS) will host an 'Amendments to the Register Rules related to the fishing fleet' conference within the third Global Fishery Forum and International Exhibition of Fish Industry, Seafood and Technology – Seafood Expo Russia.

The RS rules have been amended as a result of suggestions from industry specialists during last year's conference.

Konstantin Palnikov, RS director general, said, “Nowadays, under the investment quotas program, there are active projects on construction of innovative, high-tech, multipurpose fishing vessels. The Register, being a crucial participant to this process, endeavours to facilitate the implementation of engineering solutions on improvement of efficiency and safety of these vessels, develops its up-to-date marketable rules wherein an open dialogue with design bureaus, shipyards and operating companies is of key importance”.

At the conference, Georgy Bedrik, head of the RS planning and marketing division, will address the register activities in the fishing vessels’ sector whilst Sergey Shishkin, head of the RS classification division, will speak about how classification experience has informed the new documentation.

Alexey Tymoshchuk, deputy head of the RS Baltic branch office, will highlight the topical issues during survey under construction and representatives of Vyborg Shipyard, JSC Shipyard 'Yantar', Marine Engineering Bureau and Damen are also expected to speak.

The RS conference will be held on 10 July in the Presentation Area, Pavilion F, Expoforum Convention and Exhibition Centre in St Petersburg.
