Services for shipmanagers

Services which ISONIKE can perform for shipmanagers:
NB: Under the requirements of the ISM Code, the responsibility for the safe management of the vessel lies with the company which has assumed responsibility for the operation of the ship and who has agreed to take over all the responsibilities imposed by the ISM Code. In practise this is normally the company who performs the technical management of the ship.
ISONIKE can offer services in support of this responsibility, but the responsibility nonetheless remains with the company they are providing these services to.
In essence ISONIKE can perform all the functions normally associated with a QHSE Manager, DPA, and CSO (or alternate DPA/CSO). This can be done either by supporting the clients internal appointees in these roles, or by assuming the roles themselves. In the latter case it is necessary to have an appointed ISONIKE representative named as such.
