International Safety Management Code (ISM-code) came into force on July 1st, 2002, and states that through safety management systems, accidents that involve ship, crew, cargo, and the environment must be minimized. Shipping.fo is fully certified according to this code, and can thereby act as DOC-holder for other ships. The HSEQ department of shipping.fo assists in obtaining certification according to this code. Our experts visit the ship, analyze the requirements, then prepares a complete SMS-system, conducts courses for the crew, and assists in the certification process. Subsequently, the department controls the efficiency of the ship's QMS, both in way of reporting as well as both internal and external audits.
