The development of Maritime Autonomous Ship Systems (MASS) has continued at a very significant pace over the last few years with more MASS entering operation all the time. They come in a variety of sizes and have a very diverse set of operational capabilities which all place their own unique demands on those who own and operate them and the remainder of the Maritime Community. MASS are an element of the development of Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (RAI) systems across the various transport sectors.

Version 5 of this Code of Practice (“Code”) has been prepared by the UK Maritime Autonomous Systems Regulatory Working Group (MASRWG) and has been published by Maritime UK through the Society of Maritime Industries. It has been prepared in two parts. Part 1 is a set of Industry Conduct Principles, which supercedes the previous Code of Conduct published in 2016, and Part 2 is the Code of Practice.

Details of the code can be found below.
