Safety Management System – SMS

SAFETY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

MONACONAVI is a professional and expert firm in managing any audit on behalf of a shipping company (both at the company headquarters and on board). It also drafts ‘Guides to Safety Management’ and provides assistance to companies in order to get the Safety Management Certificate (SMC) and the Document of Compliance (DOC).

In the shipping industry, the Safety Management System (SMS), represents an evolution of the technical management of ship fleets. This system allows shipping companies to comply with safety and environmental protection policies, in accordance with the ISM (adopted by IMO with resolution A.741(18)).

Since July 2000, yachts (with a tonnage greater than 550 GRT) are also required to comply with the SMS.

The ISM code is the standard international code for the safe management and operation of ships and for pollution prevention (SOLAS – chapter IX).
