Introduction to the ISM Auditor Course

The course is delivered entirely online, so you can learn at your own pace and on your own schedule.
What is the ISM Code?
The ISM Code is an internationally recognized set of guidelines for the safe management and operation of ships and for pollution prevention. The code is developed and maintained by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), a specialized agency of the United Nations.
The ISM Code sets out requirements for a ship operator's Safety Management System (SMS), which is a formal, documented system that provides a framework for identifying and controlling risks to the safety of a ship, its crew and the environment. All ships over 500 gross tonnage engaged in international voyages are required to have an approved SMS in place.
The code also requires ship operators to appoint a designated person ashore (DPA) who has responsibility for implementing and maintaining the SMS. The DPA must have access to resources and support from senior management, including the authority to make decisions in order to ensure the safe operation of the ship.
The ISM Code was first adopted in 1993 and amended in 2000. It is kept under review by the IMO and is regularly updated to reflect changes in maritime safety practice and regulation.
