ISM Audit

All Jamaican registered ships of 500 gross tonnes (GT) and above and regardless of the date of construction shall be certified under ISM. The Maritime Authority of Jamaica (MAJ) will audit shipping companies (or their representative) having ships which fly the Jamaican flag for the issuance of Documents of Compliance and ships for the issuance of safety management certificate (SMC), at the request of the shipowner or as it deems necessary. The Maritime Authority of Jamaica might also delegate Recognized Organizations to conduct ISM audits and certification of Jamaican vessels on its behalf.
