The ISM Code paragraph 12.1 states: “The Company should carry out internal safety audits on board and ashore at intervals not exceeding twelve months to verify whether safety and pollution-prevention activities comply with the safety management system (SMS)”. Section 12.5 of the code also states that “Personnel carrying out audits should be independent of the areas being audited unless this is impracticable due to the size and nature of the company”.
