Certainly new measures for the cruise line industry will only establish standards in areas that go beyond both international requirements and US. In such a framework, the International Council of Cruise Lines (ICCL<.>) announced recently that its members have unanimously agreed to set mandatory policies for cruise ship passenger and crew safety, security, environment, operational procedures, health safety, and sanitation. These new policies mark the first time an association of international maritime operators has adopted mandatory standards on such a wide-ranging set of topics. Adherence to the policies now will be required for continuation of membership in the association. Existing U.S. and international regulations require compliance on a broad range of safety, environmental and health issues. These regulatory regimes however, differ in some respects. The new ICCL mandatory standards will meet or exceed U.S. or international standards in those areas addressed. For example, existing regulations require cruise ships to have smoke detectors sounding only on the bridge. New mandatory industry standards will require each ICCL member vessel to have smoke alarms that sound in all passenger and crew state rooms and adjacent corridors as well as on the bridge.
