ISM Code / Safety Management Documentation SystemLogin >>

Development Backgroud :


Having been motivated by a number of major marine casualties experienced during the 1980s and thereafter, the ISM Code was drawn up by the IMO recognizing that SYSTEMATICALLY ORGANIZED and DOCUMENTED shipping practices integrating shore-based management and ships are indispensable for the safe operation of ships and for protection of marine environment. The ISM Code was adopted as IMO Resolution A.741(18) on 4th November, 1993 and it became a mandatory code, from 1st July 1998 for some ship types and as from 1st July 2002 for all ship types, as specified in Regulation 2, Chapter IX of the SOLAS Convention.

Any ship management company must structure a SMS, which meets the requirements of the ISM Code and it should be DOCUMENTED, IMPLEMENTED and MAINTAINED. The company should then obtain a DOC for the main office and SMC(s) for their Ship(s), upon satisfactory completion of Audits conducted by the Flag State Administration, otherwise the Company is not legally able to engage in any International Shipping business.

eSMS is an Electronic Documentation System developed to control and maintain the documentation of the SMS and to comply with Flag / Class requirements during Ship Surveys/ISM Audits, currently covering follwoing provisions of ISM Code:

1.2 OBJECTIVES:

1.2.2 Safety management objectives of the Company should, inter alia:
.3 continuously improve safety management skills of personnel ashore and aboard ships, including preparing for emergencies related both to safety and environmental protection.

7. DEVELOPMENT OF PLANS FOR SHIPBOARD OPERATIONS :

The Company should establish procedures for the preparation of plans and instructions, including checklists as appropriate, for key shipboard operations concerning the safety of the ship and the prevention of pollution. The various tasks involved should be defined and assigned to qualified personnel.


8. EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS :

8.1 The Company should establish procedures to identify, describe and respond to potential emergency shipboard situations.
8.2 The Company should establish programmes for drills and exercises to prepare for emergency actions.
8.3 The safety management system should provide for measures ensuring that the Company's organization can respond at any time to hazards, accidents and emergency situations involving its ships.


9.REPORTS AND ANALYSIS OF NON-CONFORMITIES, ACCIDENTS AND HAZARDOUS OCCURRENCES :

9.1 The safety management system should include procedures ensuring that non-conformities, accidents and hazardous situations are reported to the Company, investigated and analysed with the objective of improving safety and pollution prevention.
9.2 The Company should establish procedures for the implementation of corrective action.


11. DOCUMENTATION :

12.5 The results of the audits and reviews should be brought to the attention of all personnel having responsibility in the area involved.
12.6 The management personnel responsible for the area involved should take timely corrective action on deficiencies found.
