SHIP INSPECTION IN THE FUTURE – SAFETY OR CERTIFICATION

Is ship inspection about safety or compliance – What is your opinion? An invitation by the Danish Maritime Authority to discuss and learn more about our new inspection scheme.

During the last 5 years, the Danish Maritime Authority has tried to develop its flag State inspections of passenger ships and fishing vessels.

Ship inspection is very much about compliance with regulations. We have asked ourselves whether compliance is the same as safety? The answer is both Yes and No. But we believe that surveys can focus more on safety than they do today.

During the workshop, we will present the experiences gained with our new inspection scheme. We will also discuss the purpose of ship surveys and the potential for increasing the safety outcome. To ensure a good debate, we have invited representatives from the shipping industry.
