The Liberian Registry has trained its own world-wide network of inspectors and auditors to carry out company and ship verification and certification as mandated by the ISM (International Safety Management) code, the ISPS (International Ship and Port Facility Security) code, and the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC). These auditors perform a large percentage of the Code and Convention approval and certification tasks for the Liberian fleet, providing owners and operators with professional and cost effective service.
Certification audits can be combined with Annual Safety Inspections. By harmonizing the overlapping requirements of these International Codes, the Convention, and Liberian Regulations, the Liberian Registry provides shipowners convenient, efficient and cost-effective certification services. Shipowners can ensure compliance while reducing the burden on ship and shore staff, as well as reducing survey expenses by enrolling in Liberia's optional Harmonized Audit Program and harmonizing the overlapping aspects of the ISM, ISPS, and MLC requirements.
Liberia’s Audit Coordination Department assures that audits are conducted in a professional and timely manner with as little as possible burden on the shipowner and the vessel’s crew.
The Liberian Registry has also trained its auditors to conduct MLC 2006 inspections The Administration is offering shipowners and ship managers a block fee arrangement (BFA) for verification and certification for compliance with the MLC 2006. The BFA includes the fee for review and acceptance of the shipowners Declaration of Maritime Labour Compliance (DMLC) Part II, initial and intermediate verification inspections and issuance of certificate and certificate amendments during the five year term of the Maritime Labour Certificate.
The Liberian Administration has professionally trained its auditors who are strategically located in key ports globally to provide effective and efficient MLC inspections and verification of Liberian flag ships. The Administration’s review of the company’s DMLC Part II will significantly reduce the duration of the on board inspection, thus saving the crews valuable time.
