ClassNK releases checklist to Good Maintenance Onboard Ships

NKKClassification society ClassNK has just released the latest version of Good Maintenance Onboard Ships (January, 2015).

The comprehensive checklist is designed to be used by shipmasters, crew, shipowners, and other key personnel in order to ensure vessels are safe, well-maintained and comply with regulations. To further improve the quality and efficiency of maintenance onboard ships, ClassNK has incorporated its knowledge and experience gained through surveys and audits, feedback from Port State Control (PSC) inspections, and comments from shipowners and mariners to provide the most up-to-date checklists for Routine Maintenance, PSC Inspections, Safety Management Systems, Ship Security Management Systems, as well as photos of the most common deficiencies. The latest edition now also includes a checklist for the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 (MLC, 2006).

ClassNK Operating Officer and Director of Survey Operations Headquarters Tetsuya Hayashi said, “At ClassNK it is our mission to ensure the safety of life and property at sea. This easy-to-use checklist includes clear explanations, photo examples as well as guidance on the latest MLC, 2006 updates and we hope that crews will utilize this to help create a safer work environment, decrease the number of PSC detained ships and prevent maintenance related problems before they have a chance to occur.”
