Once a Company gets audited, a Document of Compliance (DOC) is issued (valid for five years). It is mandatory to audit every year (three months before and after the anniversary date and before the DOC expiration date).

Safety Management System Manual consists of the following elements:

  • Commitment from top management
  • A top-tier policy manual
  • A procedures manual that documents what is done onboard the ship, during normal operations and in emergencies
  • Procedures for conducting both internal and external audits to ensure the vessel is following the documentation in the procedures manual
