International Safety Management(ISM)
Since 1 July 1998 the essential rulings of International Safety Management (ISM) code, adopted by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) in 1993, were implemented.
Already since 1 July 1996 certain types of vessels (e.g. ferries) must adhere with these rulings and vessels from Jüngerhans have had to strictly comply with these codes since 1 July 2002.
ISM regulations cover shipping safety and management systems, which also apply to people on board as well as on land.
Certification and periodical verification for the Document of Compliance (DOC)
The Ship should be operated by a company which has been issued with a Document of compliance.
The period of validity for the DOC is five years. The DOC is only valid for the ship types and flags states explicitly indicated in the document.
An external audit by the classification society takes place annually to verify that the company continuously meets the requirements of the ISM Code and to validate the DOC for another year.
OCIMF standard for heavy-lift-fleet
“OCIMF” stands for "Oil Companies International Marine Forum". This is originally a voluntary association of oil companies to develop high standards for transporting and handling petroleum and petroleum products. The primary objective was initially the safe and environmentally friendly operation of oil tankers and terminals.
For this purpose, a system was established which includes continuous improvements for the planning and operation of vessels and shore-based facilities. These high-quality standards, which initially were employed only for the tanker market, have increasingly been in demand for some time also for other segments. The focus there is implementing and administrating as well as later updating and maintaining a "safety management system".
Based primarily on the specific requirements of the offshore industry, customers of heavy-lift and project cargoes are increasingly demanding compliance with extensive regulations and thus maintenance of high standards.
