In adopting the 2008 SPS Code, the Committee recalled that, since the adoption of the previous SPS Code, many requirements of the SOLAS Convention had been amended and considerable experience had been gained in the Code's application, all of which were taken into account during the development of the new Code. Particular attention was paid to the matter of trainees on training ships which led to a comprehensive revision of the term “special personnel.”
For special purpose ships certified on or after 13 May 2008, this Code applies.
