Ship Systems and Equipment Sub-Committee (SSE)
These aspects include:

- testing and approval of systems and equipment

This sub-committee was formed in 2014 when three former sub-committees - Ship Design and Equipment (DE), Fire Protection (FP), and Stability and Load Lines and Fishing Vessel Safety (SLF) – were merged and then split into SSE and the Ship Design and Construction (SDC) Sub-Committee.
