ISM Code is International Safety Management Code.

The purpose of this Code is to provide an


international standard for the safe management and operation of ships and for pollution prevention.
The Code establishes safety-management objectives and requires a safety management system (SMS)
to be established by "the Company", which is defined as the shipowner or any person, such as the
manager or bareboat charterer, who has assumed responsibility for operating the ship. With this Code
every single thing that related to the operation of the ship must be following the rules. The rules will
guide the company to make sure there is no accident, zero fatality and etc. If the company is following
the ISM Code there must be a certifcation from the ISM Code for the company. This certificated is
become a prove that the company is following the ISM Code. Many company in Indonesia are following
the ISM Code. It makes the company is more trustable because they have the certification from The ISM
Code.

1. Some company that follow the ISM Code are :

 Jakarta Lloyd

 BKI ( Biro Klasifikasi Indonesia )

 Samudra Indonesia

 Meratus

 Spill

 Equinox

2. Some benefit will received by the company because they implement the ISM Code many of
rules and regulation for the safety and the environmental regulated in that Code. The ISM Code
it is not regulate about the ship but also regulate for the crew that will work on the ship. This
can be happen because STCW is under the ISM Code. If the company use the ISM Code so the
company will be get a good crew because the crew must be have a high standart such as
qualified as a ship crew based on background that they have, the crew should be certified
because before they become a ship crew they must be take a course and pass the test. If they
are past the test they can qualify as a certified crew, and the last one the crew should be have
a good healthy record based on nasiona and international standart. For the ship certification
ther e are some certification such as registration certificate, international tonnage certificatem,
civil liability certificate, safety radio certificate, hull and machinery certificate, cargo gear
certificate and many more. We take some certificate for example that will have benefit for the
company such as hull and machinery and registration certificate. For the registration certificate
the company ship that has been registered to this certification will be registered as the ship
under the ISM Code, so the ship can go to any port or flag state that follow the ISM Code easily
with the permission from the flag state or port state. This can be so easy because the port state
no need to check all of the requirement that ship have because the ship must be have the same
standart with the port state standart because both of them are following the ISM Code. For the
hull and machinery certificate can give benefit to the company because the company’s ship will
have hull and machinery with international standart. If it following and implementing the
international standart it will more easier to get the pemission if the ship want to sail from one
country to another country. Ship that following teh ISM Code will be more safer because the
code is to make sure there are no accident when the ship is sealing so the ship will be build
under a high standart of safety. The ship company should be easier to get the insurance because
the ship use the international standart and this code is under the IMO. Because of the ship and
the crew is following the ISM Code so the company wouldn’t be worry for the environmental
danger because the ship has an International standart for the environmental safety and the
crew have awareness to the environmental because the crew is qualified and certified.
