GUIDANCE IN THE EVENT OF UNSEAWORTHINESS
Application: all ship-owners, operators, masters and officers of merchant ships and authorised classification societies and approved inspectors
When undertaking inspection of ships and yachts on behalf of Barbados Maritime, an inspector may find deficiencies that pose a grave risk to the safety, security and environmental operation of the ship and seafarers.
In these circumstances and when it is seen that the Master and/or Owners are not taking any steps
to deal with the deficiencies, the ship should not be allowed to put to sea.
The matter should be brought to the attention of BMSR immediately on the Emergency 24hr phone: +44 (0)7939 312822 or landline to +44 (0) 207636 5739. BMSR will then take further action to protect the ship, seafarers and environment.
