Compliance

ISM Code

The ISM Code sets out requirements of procedures for the personnel, especially performing safety roles, to properly familiarize with their duties. Furthermore, it puts an emphasis on the training necessary to support safety management systems. The Lithium-ion Battery Safety Awareness course reinforces the commitment to the ISM Code obligations by updating the personnel on safety protocols and offering comprehensive training to the crew in charge of safety operations on superyachts. 

STCW Convention Regulation 

STCW Convention Regulation I/14 – 5 emphasizes that the seafarers should be familiar with their duties, ship arrangements, equipment, and relevant procedures. The Li-ion Battery Awareness course provides practical knowledge of routine and emergency procedures when handling Li-ion powered equipment.  

     MCA MGN 681

    In its MGN 681 issued in June 2023, the MCA stated the requirement for the competent person to undertake battery charging operations onboard. Based on the note and Code of Safe Working Practices, the course helps define the competent person's role and duties.
