Comparison of Modelling Methodologies for the Formal Safety Assessment in Shipping Transportation
In the last decades, in maritime transportation, there have been a number of very serious accidents caused by different nature contributing factors. The consequences of these accidents were mass casualties in terms of human lives or human injuries, and in terms of environmental degradation, contributing to spoilage in local regional economies. A specific process known as Formal Safety Assessment (FSA) has been developed and applied to the International Marine Time Transportation (IMO) rule making process, in order to help the evaluation of new regulations or to compare proposed changes with existing standards.
