The World Health Organization (WHO) ‘Guide to Ship Sanitation’ has become the official global reference on health requirements for ship construction and operation and is referenced in the International Health Regulations. Its purpose is to standardize the sanitary measures taken in ships, to safeguard the health of travellers and workers, and to prevent the spread of infection from one country to another. The Guide was first published in 1967 and amended in 1987.

This revised third edition of the guide reflects the changes in construction, design and size of ships since the 1960s, and the existence of new diseases including Legionnaires’ disease that were not foreseen when the 1967 Guide was published.

The Guide to Ship Sanitation is divided into seven chapters; each consists of two main sections, “Background” and “Guidelines”.

The “Background” section describes critical issues and supporting health evidence applicable to the specific topic of the chapter.

The “Guidelines” section in each chapter of the Guide provides user-targeted information and guidance. It identifies responsibilities and provides examples of practices that can control public health risks, highlighting the most important aspects that need to be considered when setting priorities for action.
Chapters include:
– Introduction
– Water safety
– Food safety
– Recreational water environments
– Ballast water and waste disposal
– Legionnaire’s disease
– Persistent infectious agents and disease vectors.
