The Malta Government has notified ClassNK of carriage requirements and air pressure tests of immersion suits as below (Technical Notice SLS.8 Rev.2).

Contents of ClassNK Technical Information No.TEC-0658 (only requirements for Malta flagged vessels) and No.TEC-0953 were integrated into this ClassNK Technical Information, and therefore this ClassNK Technical Information supersedes No.TEC-0953.

The following sea areas have been defined as warm climate sea areas for the scope of application of exemption provisions contained in the regulation:
