Why are P&I Surveys Important?

In today's world of strict maritime regulations, a shipowner must maintain compliance and offer protection to seafarers. The marine P&I surveyor (or local correspondent) performs inspections onboard to identify a ship's seaworthiness and make recommendations based on findings to make shipping safer and more efficient. A routine P&I survey also ensures peace of mind and promotes a culture of trust and safety on board.

Therefore, P&I surveys have proven to be indispensable to the shipping industry. The Viswa Group's P&I surveys help customers minimize risks, maximize operational efficiency, and improve environmental and safety of those on board.

The Value of P&I Surveys

When transporting cargo, ships can encounter many challenges. If a vessel suffers any damage at sea, whether it be equipment damage, cargo damage or, other minor incidents, it puts the environment and lives of seafarers immediately at risk.

P&I surveys can therefore help:

  • Minimize risk at sea and prevent potential accidents.
  • Protect the lives of seafarers onboard and the ecosystem.
  • Ensure smooth, uninterrupted business operations.
  • Limit downtime and operational disturbance.
