IMO Orcs prepare to strike again.

The premise behind the development of goal-based standards is that IMO should play a larger role in determining the
fundamental standards to which new ships are built.
Here's SNAME's summary.
IMO is the Int'l Maritime Organization -- a United Nations agency which has waged a pretty effective war against mariners from Southern Asia, Africa, and parts of South America. Now it's apparently going to tackle the shipbuilding industry.

It's not that they're not interested in safety; it's that they're more interested in preventing competition with established builders
