ISM CODE & ISPS CODE

ISM CODE & ISPS CODE - ClassIBS Genoa - IBS GROUP
ISM CODE ClassIBS carries out ISM certification on behalf of several flag state administrations. Since the Code was introduced, we have been at the forefront of its implementation, leading in the provision of cost-effective certification.
What is the ISM Code?
The International Management Code for the Safe Operation of Ships and for Pollution Prevention (ISM Code) is a management systems model designed to encourage safety and pollution prevention. Compliance is mandatory for passenger ships and other ships of 500 grt and upwards engaged on international voyages, although individual flag administrations may add to these minimum requirements.
In general terms, the Code requires that safeguards be established against the safety and pollution risks involved in shipboard operations. Responsibility for this is placed firmly on the companies charged with the ships management.

Benefits
Systematic planning and implementation of activities and operations can lead to improved management control.
Implementation of the ISM Code helps you to achieve greater operational efficiency and leads to a reduction in losses arising from accidents and pollution incidents.
Compliance with the Code encourages the establishment of processes to ensure continual improvement.
It leads to confidence on the part of regulators, charterers, and others that the company and its ships comply with requirements.

Certification
The experience and training that our auditors bring to the audit process ensure that your ISM certificates are evidence of much more than simple compliance. Acting on behalf of several flag state administrations, our auditors are exposed to many companies and ship types, and this, enables them to work with you in the development of a mature management system.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ISPS CODE
Like safety, maritime security is of paramount importance to the operation of a vessel. The International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code came into force on July 1, 2004 and is applicable to all vessels over 500 grt operating on international trades, as well as the ports that service them.
IBS offers a full range of statutory certification services to help you maintain compliance. We also offer ISPS training courses.
What is the ISPS Code?
The ISPS Code provides a framework through which ships and port facilities can co-operate to detect and deter acts which pose a threat to maritime security. The Code:
Enables the detection and deterrence of security threats within an international framework
Establishes roles and responsibilities
Enables collection and exchange of security information
Provides a methodology for assessing security
Ensures that adequate security measures in place.
It requires ship and port facility staff to:
Gather and assess information
Maintain communication protocols
Restrict access, prevent the introduction of unauthorized weapons, etc.
Provide the means to raise alarms
Put in place vessel and port security plans and ensure training and drills are conducted.
The regulatory provisions do not extend to the actual response to security incidents or to any necessary clear-up activities after such an incident.
Benefits
We can provide you with expert security advice delivered at a level that suits your needs.
You receive the assistance you need to develop and implement an effective security management system that meets the requirements of the Code.
We offer a full suite of services to help you comply with the ISPS Code in the most practical and cost-effective manner.
ISPS certification for ships
If the ISPS Code applies to your ship, it must have an International Ship Security Certificate (ISSC) in order to operate. As a Recognized Security Organization for the various flag state administrations, we can carry out security plan approvals and verification audits, leading to the issue of an ISSC for your ship
