The Club is pleased to provide Members with a new edition of our Drugs and Alcohol at Sea booklet. The revised guidance aims to provide the most up to date advice, assisting with the prevention of related incidents as well as encouraging healthy lifestyle choices and the positive wellbeing of seafarers.

The World Drug Report 2017 identified that while there has been a slight decline in the use of some drugs such as cocaine, there has been an increase in the consumption of cannabis and opioids (pain killers) and that the overall use of drugs worldwide has remained at the same levels as a result. In an effort to assist operators in identifying drug and alcohol related issues on board, our updated guidance incorporates advice on drug and alcohol policies, legal and safety considerations as well as providing a brief overview of the most commonly consumed drugs.
