DOCUMENTATIONWe will work closely with the crew to produce the following mandatory documentation:
Safety Management Systems
This will contain the policies, procedures, instructions and guidelines required to operate your yacht in accordance with the International Safety Management (ISM) Code or the “Mini-ISM” contained in the Large Yacht Code.
Ship Security Plan
We are qualified to carry out a ship security assessment, including an ”On-Scene” survey, and to produce a ship security plan that will comply with the requirements of the International Ship and Port Security (ISPS) code.
Safety (SOLAS) Training Manuals
We produce customised manuals, in accordance with the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) convention requirements, to support crew training with Life Saving Equipment, Fire Fighting Apparatus and other safety arrangements on board. We will also provide assistance with producing training videos.
Both the Safety Management Manual and Ship Security Plan will contain several emergency procedures to deal with the potential threats to safety and security. We can also provide assistance to produce two SOLAS required ship-specific documents for EMERGENCY TOWING PROCEDURES and RECOVERY OF PERSONS FROM THE WATER.

Recovery of persons from the water – Key contents:
Three requirements of the Maritime Pollution Convention (MARPOL) are that commercial and private yachts should take steps to avoid pollution by oil spillage and garbage, and manage their energy efficiency. To help achieve this, yachts of 400 GT and above must carry a Shipboard Oil Pollution Emergency Plan (SOPEP) and Ships Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP). Yachts carrying 15 or more persons must have a Garbage Management Plan (GMP).

Maritime Labour Convention (MLC 2006)
For commercially operated yachts of 24 metres and above to comply, the employer must document how they will provide the necessary seafarers living and working conditions. We will assist with this by producing a Document of Maritime Labour Compliance (DMLC) to meet the standards required by the Flag State.

While it is important for the crew to know what actions to take and how to operate equipment, they must also have a good understanding of Maintenance routines. We will provide assistance to produce ship specific inspection, testing and maintenance routines for:
