Today, more than half of the world´s merchant ships (measured by tonnage) are registered under
Flags of Convenience, formally referred as "Open Registries". The reasons for choosing an Open Register
are varied and include protection from taxes, the avoidance of national regulations, labour wage scales or
political boycotts. For example, the avoidance of the 50% duty the United States government charges
on repairs performed on American-flagged ships in foreing ports.
Globalization has significantly influenced the mechanics of world trade and has affected the owning
and operating structures of merchant ships. Long gone are the days when most shipping companies
had a single national shareholding and operating base and operated under a single flag. Ships are now
more commonly owned by multinational Corporations though extensive private family-controlled
shipping ventures still feature strongly. For all types of shipping it is common for different aspects of
ship operation - for example, technical or crew management, chartering, marketing - to be located
in different countries.

AUDITS OF I.S.M. & I.S.P.S.
I.S.R. Auditors can conduct I.S.M. & I.S.P.S. internal Audits on vessels or at Company Offices.
We can assits to DPA / CSO with Audits, or carry them out alone to the Company´s requirements.
In addition ISR auditors can conduct internal audits on the DPA / CSO department, an area which is
often difficult to audit as the respective Codes require to auditor to be independent of the area under audit.
As Class Surveyors we have carry out numerous external audits on vessels and Company offices.
Our experience in external audits allows us to identify areas in the SMS or SSP which are liable to
be picked up by external auditors.
It as become clear that if a Company can identify problems during their internal audits and deal
with them in their own time, then the external audits become less problematic and less prone to
time-constrained solutions imposed by external auditing authority, thus saving time and money.

Safety, Quality, Environment ans Security Management Systems. With these credentials, we can
confidently state that an ISR auditor can, accurately evaluate the status of implementation and
effectiveness of any system.
