What is the Code of Practice for Safety of Large Commercial Sailing and Motor Vessels?

This Code of Practice was introduced in 1998 (as an equivalent approach) to address the requirements of SOLAS, International Load Line Convention (LL 66) and the STCW Convention in a yacht-specific manner. IMO Circular letter 1966 dated 27th July 1997 gave effect to the Code as equivalence on an international basis.
