The IMO was formed in 1959 for 'improving maritime safety and preventing pollution from ships'. The IMO provides very informative pages - their publications and information resources pages include wide-ranging information from explanations of a convention to a debate on the drug smuggling issue. The web site offers a breakdown of the organisation's history and aims. The links section is comprehensive, allows searching by subject, country and keyword. Should be a first port of call for those seeking information on conventions and protocols.
