International regulations for preventing collisions at sea (1972)
MINDFUL of the need for early entry into force of the Convention on the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972,
RESOLVES to recommend that those States which contemplate becoming Parties to the Convention:
(1) deposit their instruments of ratification, approval, acceptance or accession at as early a date as possible;
(2) if they have not deposited such instruments before 31 December 1973, give the Secretary-General of the Inter-Governmental Maritime Consultative Organization by not later than that date an indication of the period within which they expect to be able to do so.
