Development of effective marine policy necessitates evidence-based, data-driven evaluations of the effects of regulatory constraints on operations. This is essential to better understand implications of policy decisions on complex socio-technical systems. This paper demonstrates a generalized methodology for evaluating operational implications associated with implementing maritime regulations. The method combines a ship performance model, regulatory constraint models, and multi-criteria pathfinding and optimization algorithms to evaluate and compare the operational implications of different regulatory constraints. The method is applied to Arctic shipping. The Polar Operational Limit Assessment Risk Indexing System (POLARIS) and the Arctic Ice Regimes Shipping System (AIRSS) are considered. POLARIS and AIRSS are regulatory guidelines used to assign structural safety constraints on ships in ice. Four approaches for assigning structural safety constraints are modelled: 1) POLARIS, 2) AIRS.....
