Must a registrar employ a certified lead auditor?

ISM Auditor

Our training provides practical examples of real life situations and prepares the trainees to develop and implement the management system on board and ashore.

The ISM Code requires establishment of safeguards to ensure mitigation of risks in safety and pollution in shipboard operations.  The Code places responsibility for this squarely on the companies charged with the ship's management.  We offer ISM training with various options to meet the industry requirements.
