Flag state inspections
The key target of the Flag State inspections, supposed to be effected every year, is examining ships’ technical condition and fittings, checking the ships’ crews' qualifications and certificates for their compliance with the Minimum Safe Manning Certificate and the STCW Convention (The 1978 Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers as amended).

The inspectors are also supposed to reconfirm the compliance of the ships and their fittings with the requirements of the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships ( MARPOL 73/78 as mended ), as well as the proper functioning of the International Safety Management system ( ISM ) and the observance of the ISPS code procedures. To avoid potential conflict of interests with other scopes of UMS Marbalco activities instituted in company’s structure independent Flag State Inspections Department under personal supervision of our Managing Director.
