Yearbook of the United Nations, 2002. Part 6, Intergovernmental organizations related to the United Nations. Chapter 13, International Maritime Organization (IMO)
In 2002, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) continued to improve the safety and security of international shipping and protect the marine environment from pollution by ships. New measures to enhance maritime security were adopted, as was a revised Protocol on liability and compensation for passengers at sea. On 7 November, the 1993 amendments [YUN 1993, p. 1310] to the 1948 Convention establishing IMO [YUN 1948, p. 1113] entered into force, enlarging IMO Council membership from 32 to 40. The Council met between sessions of the IMO Assembly, IMO's highest governing body, which convened once every two years. In 2002, IMO membership increased to 162 with three associate members.
