UK - MAIB, the Marine Accident Investigation Branch has postponed the publication of it's Safety Digest, after a newspaper decided to name and shame ships and companies it believed were referred to in the organisations previous digest.

In a statement MAIB said: "The MAIB has a legal obligation, laid down in its Regulations, to consult with any “person who, or organisation which, could be adversely affected by the report”, and to take into account any representations made.

"Therefore, unless the MAIB can find a novel means of ensuring that the subjects of the Safety Digest remain anonymous, there appears to be no option but to undertake a major consultation exercise on each case in future Safety Digests. The increased resource implications and inevitable diminution of the key safety messages this process will cause, may make future publication of the Safety Digest unsustainable."
