    This paper provides an update on the progress at the International Maritime Organization (IMO) on the timetabling and development of a second phase of work on the International Code for ships operating in polar regions (Polar Code) which is expected to focus on non-SOLAS vessels (fishing vessels, pleasure craft, small cargo vessels). It leads to recommendations on the engagement of CCAMLR and CCAMLR Members in the work at the IMO and also identifies actions to be undertaken ahead of completion of the work at the IMO. The recommendations and actions will contribute to the necessary protection for the CCAMLR Convention Area.
