Cruise CLIA cruise safety policies adopted by international organization By Tom Stieghorst / July 02, 2013 Share 1 -- CLIA said all 10 of the safety policies its members adopted after the Costa Concordia grounding off the Italian coast in 2012 have been adopted as formal standards by the International Maritime Organization. Some of the 10, such as mandating passenger participation in muster drills, had previously been accepted. CLIA said three more standards from the 2012 Global Cruise Industry Operational Safety Review were implemented at the IMO's recently completed Maritime Safety Committee meeting. The committee is the IMO's senior technical body on marine safety issues. "Cruising remains one of the safest vacation experiences available today,” CLIA President Christine Duffy said.
