Every year the club sees several navigation related incidents which have a potential to become high value claims and impact safety of life and property and damage to environment and reputation. These incidents are not limited to any specific ship-type and can have a catastrophic ramification.

Standard club promotes and encourages members to develop a robust safety culture which prioritizes safe navigation by having clear procedures, purposeful training and a reliable assessment process irrespective of the ship type.

AMSA has announced a Focused Inspection Campaign (FIC) on safety of navigation.

The purpose of the focused inspection campaign is to determine: 

  • the level of compliance with the safety of navigation requirements of International Conventions.
  • the familiarity of the master and officers with their processes for ensuring safety of navigation

AMSA Marine notice 4/2021 provides information about the FIC which will run from 1 Aug 2021 to 30 Sep 2021. AMSA surveyors will undertake the FIC in conjunction with a normal port or Flag State Control inspection.

More information on the FIC along with the checklist is available at the links below.
