To comply with the International Safety Management Code (ISM) Code, every company must have a functional Safety Management System (SMS), which conforms to the requirements of the ISM Code and includes a safety and environmental protection policy, safe operating procedures, defined levels of authority, procedures for internal audits etc.
Our team of highly experienced International Safety Management experts understand the needs of what actually has to be included in a compliant Safety Management System (SMS) and how it is best administered. This professional expertise ensures that any development of an appropriate company-wide SMS system is cost effective and complies with all applicable mandatory rules and regulations, supporting both the company’s office operations and that of its vessels.
Our management system experts are familiar with current trends, common failures and what Flag State and Port State Control inspectors are often looking for, within associated regulations including their amendments (i.e. SOLAS, MARPOL, STCW, and MLC etc.)
We can develop approved Company Safety Management Systems, in both paper and electronic format, and utilise tried and tested technical solutions to package the SMS to include replication ashore and on-board.
Our clients often choose to support any SMS Development project work with associated internal audits. Please contact us to discuss your particular requirements.
