The Manning Agent audit may be conducted remotely. The remote audit is conducted by requesting the auditee to transmit specific records to the Office to verify the SMS procedures implementation. The audit will be a combination of a review of documents (forms/checklists/printouts); and where necessary, interviews through video calls / online demonstrations, etc. The list of documents to be submitted will be provided through email by the Company.

The Margetis Maritime Auditor will:

  1. Communicate with the auditees via the web and provide any necessary instructions.
  2. Request records and evidence for various implemented procedures. Records can be received through email.
  3. Assess the received records and, when appropriate, cross-check their accuracy.
  4. Conduct interviews with key persons from the Manning Agent’s Organization through a suitable web-based platform. Any additional documentation required can be shared online via the platform during the audit.
  5. Check crew records, certificates, training records, seaman’s books, medical reports, D&A tests, crew contracts, etc. already available in the office, which are sent by the Manning Agent prior to on-signing of every seafarer.
  6. Communicate the report to the auditee for follow-up.
