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,
Amendment by a Conference:
(a) Upon the request of a Party concurred in by at least one-third of the Parties, the Organization shall convene a Conference of the Parties to consider amendments to the Convention.
(b) Every amendment adopted by such a Conference by a two-thirds majority of the Parties present and voting shall be communicated by the Secretary-General to all the Parties for acceptance.
(c) Unless the Conference decides otherwise, the amendment shall be deemed to have been accepted and shall enter into force in accordance with the procedures specified in paragraph (2)(f) and (g) respectively, provided that references in those sub-paragraphs to the expanded Maritime Safety Committee shall be taken to mean references to the Conference.
