    The integrated project SAFEDOR has been completed in spring 2009 and this paper summarizes the achievements. SAFEDOR has been focusing work on the development of a risk-based regulatory framework, a risk-based design framework, advanced probabilistic simulation tools and their integration as well as a series of application examples. The paper outlines the elements of the risk-based regulatory framework incl. approval process, risk evaluation criteria, requirements for documentation and key personnel as well as onboard documentation. Novel risk-based simulation tools and their integration into a design environment are discussed. The paper also highlights the innovative ship designs developed within SAFEDOR and points towards possible future applications. Eventually, future research on risk-based approaches is outlined.
