The present handbook has been designed and subsequently released by the IOM Ship Registry with the intention to be used by the Masters as well as senior officers of the vessels registered under the flag of the Isle of Man. The main purpose of the document is to provide them with the use-friendly source of information related to the IOM Merchant Shipping regulatory documentation together with the administrative processes that are normally required to properly run the vessel.
Note that the procedures contained in this book may be different from the procedures established for the vessels of other flags; the main idea of the handbook is actually to give some simple guidance on the most important areas. The opening chapters of the handbook are covering the STCW and ship manning requirements, work and rest hours, reporting accidents and provisions of the MLC 2006 convention.
Then the authors have paid due attention to the port state control activities and procedures, issuance of the shipboard certification paperwork, surveys and audits carried out on board, shipboard equipment including the newly introduced LRIT systems, refugees and stowaways, shipboard lifting gear and appliances, log and record books, and many other issues.
