Cost-Benefit Assessment on FSA of Amendment of Required Subdivision Index ‘R’ of Passenger Ships

旅客船の要求区画指数 R 見直しFSAにおける費用対効果評価

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has been discussing about amendment of required subdivision index ‘R’ of passenger ships and some amendments of R has been proposed. It is important to consider the amendment of R from not only one aspect such as technical feasibility but also the view point of cost-effectiveness. Therefore, Cost-Benefit Assessment (CBA) on Formal Safety Assessment (FSA) was carried out for ‘R’ of Japan’s proposal in this study. In general, FSA is conducted for a generic model, i.e. for an individual ship, however, in this study, the authors proposed that FSA was carried out for the fleet by considering the distribution of the number of Persons on Board (PoB). As the result, the distribution of Gross Cost of Averting a Fatality (GCAF), which is an index for CBA in FSA, was obtained. The impact of amendment of the rule will be able to be considered deeper by using the method presented in this paper.
