WHO IS SAFE AND WHO IS AT RISK: A STUDY OF 20-YEAR-RECORD ON ACCIDENT TOTAL LOSS IN DIFFERENT FLAGS

This paper collects and analyzes 20 years of records (1977-1996) of the 36 principal fleets in the world, calculates each fleet's growth rate and accidental total loss numbers per 1,000 ships, and thus tests the reliability of these understandings and to what extent they are accurate. The study confirms that the open-registry ships tend toward substandard ships. However, some open-registry countries' safety records are quite acceptable. It finds that the safety record of developing maritime countries as a group is better than that of developed maritime countries, of which some are worse than the world average.
