Due to the number of accidents at sea, The International Maritime Organization (IMO) introduced the International Safety Management Code (ISM) to ensure safe operations, prevent human injury, and prevent environmental damage. The ISM code requires shipping companies to carry out internal and external audits for each vessel they are managing.
Carrying out internal and external audits verify that ships and shore organizations follow the responsibilities and objectives detailed in the Safety Management System. It also enables shipping companies to identify improvement areas, measure performance, and implement policies that conform to the ISM code.
As per the ISM code, shipping companies need to have procedures for SMS or ISM audits. Internal SMS or ISM audits are considered more important than external audits since they measure system effectiveness, and companies stand to gain or lose more if the system fails.
The ISM Code requires shipping companies to hire independent auditors for conducting SMS or ISM audits to ensure unbiased inspection.
