Who needs ISM?
ISM is mandatory for Commercial vessels (including charter & commercially registered yachts of 500GT & over & those of any size chartering with more than 12 passengers). ISM may be utilized voluntarily by any sized vessel, including private yachts.
Our ISM-System consists of the following modules:
YMG SecSafe Ltd. holds an international recognized Document of Compliance (DOC) as requested by the ISM – Code
A Safety Management Handbook is being customtailored for each yacht. This handbook contains all mandatory Safety Procedures as required by the ISM – Code. It also contains check lists and contingency plans for emergencies. If a new customer yacht has already some procedures and checklists in place, these will be checked against the requirements of the ISM-Code and will be used in the handbook. We are proud to include all wishes of our customers into their new handbook, as long as they go with the ISM – Code. For completely new yachts without any procedures or checklists in place, we are providing a full new set.
YMG SecSafe Ltd. is operating an emergency hotline 24/7. The ships crew can contact this hotline at any time for emergency assistance
YMG SecSafe Ltd. is providing a professional Designated Person Ashore (DPA) as it is required by the ISM – Code
YMG SecSafe Ltd. is operating paper reduced. Therefore it provides the customer with an exclusive internet accessible software. All mandatory document exchanges between the yacht and the shore office of YMG SecSafe Ltd. are administered via this software
An auditor of YMG SecSafe Ltd. will execute internal audits on board of the yacht in intervals as required by the ISM - Code
