Abstract: Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to examine the implementation of the verified gross mass (VGM) rules in Hong Kong. Design/methodology/approach - The purpose of this paper is to compare the IMO Guidelines and the Guidelines produced by the Marine Department in Hong Kong. Findings - The drafting of the Hong Kong Guidelines is not as clear and detailed as the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Guidelines. Practical implications - Shipping companies should review their sea carriage contracts to see whether new clauses should be inserted to solve problems arising from the VGM requirement. Originality/value - A research by direct analysis of the IMO and the Hong Kong Guidelines on the implementation of the VGM rules in the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) is shown in this paper.
