Flag State Inspections

Flag State Inspections

by absurveyors
Flag State Inspections (FSI) or Annual Safety Inspections (ASI)  have the purpose of ensuring vessels are keeping satisfactory standards on board, in compliance with the regulations of the state of the flag that they fly.

Flag State Inspections

Flag State Inspections include verification of statutory documentation, compliance with all applicable regulations, and a general examination of the vessel’s structure, machinery and equipment, operational testing of fire fighting equipment, life saving appliances and  safety equipment. They usually include the performance and assessment of a safety drill.

During Flag State inspections, ISM/ISPS and MLC audits, as well as statutory certificates endorsements can be performed.

We are approved Flag State Inspectors on behalf of  Liberia Ship Registry and Palau International Ship Registry, attending on board any type of ship or vessel.
