The IMO MSC.1/Circ.1238 "Guidelines for Evacuation Analysis for new and existing Passanger Ships" defines how to accomplish an evacuation analysis with a software tool. Annex 3 of this guideline gives a guidance on validation and verification of evacuation simulation tools. The simulation results of the testcases given in the guidance are presented in the following.

PedGo and AENEAS meet the requirements of the IMO MSC.1/Circ. 1238. This is certified by the German Maritime Authority (BG Verkehr). The Certificate is available for download below. In this manner PedGo and AENEAS are the only person flow simulations, which are certified by an independent institution.
