The UN Maritime Organization, IMO, is now working on mapping out how existing international rules can be used alongside autonomous ships and maritime technologies. Technologies that are in rapid development.

"From the Danish side, we want international regulation to be at the forefront of technological development, not least so that new technology can help strengthen maritime safety. The efforts in IMO show that we are at the forefront of securing international framework conditions that allow the Blue Denmark to make best use of its global strengths position in the development and application of new innovative solutions," says Minister of Industry, Brian Mikkelsen.

The proposal to put autonomous ships on the agenda in IMO has been jointly made by Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Japan, The Netherlands, Norway, South Korea, England and the United States. A further discussion showed that there are still many safety and legal conditions that need to be clarified in relation to autonomous ships.

Despite some concerns, there was a broad consensus that IMO should start work now. There was also a consensus that IMO should look at how developments will affect the seafarers.

In connection with the meeting itself, Denmark also held a presentation where representatives from Maersk and DTU presented their concrete work with autonomous ships. The Danish Maritime Authority has also taken the initiative in this area and is underway with a survey of maritime regulation that will be influenced by autonomous ships.
