Flag State Inspections/Surveys

Objectives of flag State inspections

Flag State control inspections:

  • Support the quality shipping objectives of a Flag state.
  • Enforce high standard of compliance with international and national rules and standards for international shipping.
  • Verify the actual condition of ships conform to the certificates they carry. The scope of the verification includes:
    • Hull, equipment and manning;
    • Safety management; and
    • Security systems
  • Ensure that the ship's crew can effectively:
    • Co-ordinate their activities in an emergency situation;
    • Perform functions vital to safety; and
    • Prevent or mitigate pollution

Our qualified surveyors and auditors can assist the ship and the flag state towards meeting the Flag state inspection regime objectives.
