Regulation has become a target for many political voices, red tape restricting innovation and business which should be removed or constrained. Of course, regulations are introduced to achieve many different objectives. The lecture will look at the development of the current maritime safety regulatory regimes, international, national and non-statutory, to set out how innovation has been addressed, how specific concerns have driven change and attempt to quantify the benefits. It will conclude by considering current challenges and setting these against the safety gains of the past.

The lecture rests heavily on the experience of the speaker gained during forty years working in heavily regulated industries including thirty years with Lloyd’s Register of Shipping.
