ISM/ISPS/MLC Internal Audits

Optimizing Maritime Safety Compliance with ISM Audits: MARINL’s Expertise
In the intricate realm of maritime safety, strict adherence to the ISM (International Safety Management) Code is paramount. Paragraph 12.1 of the ISM Code mandates that “every company should carry out internal safety audits on board and ashore at intervals not exceeding twelve months to verify whether safety and pollution-prevention activities comply with the safety management system (SMS).” This foundational requirement underscores the critical role of internal safety audits in upholding the highest standards of safety and environmental protection within the maritime industry.
Furthermore, Section 12.5 of the code emphasizes the need for independence in personnel conducting these audits, stating that “Personnel carrying out audits should be independent of the areas being audited unless this is impracticable due to the size and nature of the company.” This independence is a fundamental aspect of ensuring the integrity and objectivity of the audit process.
