Who is responsible for an SMS?

Both the owner, or designated person, and master of the vessel are responsible for ensuring that a vessel has an effective Safety Management System.

The Master is responsible for:

  • Ensuring the safety of the vessel and crew;
  • Reporting vessel defects, accidents and hazardous occurrences to the owner or designated person;
  • Assigning SMS related duties and responsibilities to onboard personnel; and
  • Implementing, evaluating and reviewing the SMS onboard the vessel and reporting any deficiencies to the owner or designated person.

The owner or designated person is responsible for:

  • Monitoring the safety of the vessel and pollution prevention;
  • Determining communication and reporting arrangements between shore based and onboard personnel; and
  • Ensuring appropriate resources, crew and shore support are provided to the vessel.

A Safety Management System is a formal documented system of policies, procedures and records developed by an operator for a particular vessel that focus on the management of risk (both identification and controls) in relation to operational and passenger safety.  Documented operational and emergency procedures form two important elements of an Safety Management System but there are other mandatory elements that an Safety Management System must address.

The National Standard for Commercial Vessels Part E Operational Practices specifies the minimum requirements for an Safety Management System for domestic vessels.
