The Parties to the Convention,
Desiring to promote the safety of ships in general and the safety of fishing vessels in particular,
Bearing in mind the outstanding contribution of the International Conventions for the Safety of Life at Sea and also the International Conventions on Load Lines in promoting the safety of ships,
Recognizing that fishing vessels are exempt from almost all the requirements of those International Conventions,
Desiring therefore to establish in common agreement uniform principles and rules concerning the construction and equipment of fishing vessels directed to the safety of such vessels and their crews,
Considering that this end may best be achieved by the conclusion of a Convention,
(1)
The Convention shall enter into force twelve months after the date on which not less than fifteen States have either signed it without reservation as to ratification, acceptance, or approval or have deposited the requisite instruments of ratification, acceptance, approval or accession in accordance with Article 9, the aggregate of whose fleets of fishing vessels constitutes not less than 50 per cent by number of the world's fleet of fishing vessels of 24 metres in length and over.
(2)
The Organization shall inform the States which have signed the Convention or acceded to it of the date on which it enters into force.
(3)
For States which have deposited an instrument of ratification, acceptance, approval or accession in respect of the Convention after the requirements for entry into force thereof have been met but prior to the date of entry into force, the ratification, acceptance, approval or accession shall take effect on the date of entry into force of the Convention or three months after the date of deposit of the instrument, whichever is the later date.
(4)
For States which have deposited an instrument of ratification, acceptance, approval or accession after the date on which the Convention entered into force, the Convention shall become effective three months after the date of deposit of the instrument.
(5)
After the date on which all the conditions required under Article 11 to bring an amendment to the Convention into force have been fulfilled, any instrument of ratification, acceptance, approval or accession deposited shall apply to the Convention as amended.
