International Safety Management Code (ISM)
iQ Company created the ISM Code Assessment Module to help time-pressured shipping organizations achieve compliance while raising their levels of efficacy.
Patterned after the ISO 9000 standards, the code for International Safety Management (ISM) was created by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to ensure that ships were safe and that shipping operations were well-managed.
The guidelines are primarily a series of functional management requirements that a Safety Management System should have, including assigning responsibilities for safety to the shoreside part of the company.
The IMO has decreed that passenger ships, tankers, gas carriers, bulk carriers, and cargo high speed craft must comply with the ISM Code by 1998; all other ship types must comply by the year 2002.
