ISM certification is awarded when a company and its vessels meet the requirements of the International Management Code for the Safe Operation of Ships and for Pollution Prevention (ISM Code).
The certification has two components:
- Document of Compliance (DOC): is issued upon verification that a company meets ISM requirements.
- Safety Management Certificates (SMC): are issued to a company's vessels after we have verified onboard compliance with these same requirements.
For more information on ISM certification, please contact an ABS representative in your area.
