The stability required to ensure the safety of a ship, its crew and the environment is laid down in legislation. In PIAS the major part of legislation is predefined, readily available, while the underlying parametric editor facilities allows the definition of less frequently used or very specific criteria. More information about manipulating and selecting sets of stability cirteria can be found in the manual: https://www.sarc.nl/images/manuals/pias/htmlEN/stabcrit.html.
We have created a document to provide a coherent and clear overview of the stability criteria. This is achieved by collecting legislations set by the IMO, European Union and local authorities, and categorizes these legislations by operating area and ship type. Please send us a message if you are interested in this document including the .req files for PIAS.
Earlier this year we have informed you about the update of the stability criteria within PIAS: https://www.sarc.nl/update-of-stability-criteria-in-pias/ .
