SUBDIVISION, STABILITY, LIABILITY
This paper attempts to show that a balance of responsibility exists for casualty prevention, mitigation, and recovery and it is jointly shared by the designer, the administration, and the operator. Each of these is partially responsible for the ship's safety and continues to have some responsibility throughout the lifetime of the vessel. In order to plan a safe marine operation, the designer, with accurate information from the owner, is professionally responsible for reviewing proposed operations for the indicated lifetime of the vessel and must examine each to determine its potential for disaster. The regulatory administration must follow a similar path and select milestones on the designer's path which become the minimum federal standard for regulatory acceptability.
