The Maritime Industry Authority (MARINA) is urging shipping companies to join a self-assessment survey and training for maritime safety compliance scheduled this May.

In a bid to elevate maritime safety protocols and regulatory adherence, MARINA said it is teaming up with a French maritime expert (FME) to conduct the assessment and training.

The primary goals of the survey initiative include evaluating compliance with pertinent maritime safety regulations and industry benchmarks, pinpointing areas needing enhancement or corrective measures, instilling a safety-conscious culture, and fostering collaboration among stakeholders to tackle shared challenges, the maritime agency said in a statement.

MARINA is encouraging all roll on-roll off and passenger ship owners/operators to actively engage in the self-assessment survey form provided on their official Facebook page. The response deadline is June 30, 2024.

MARINA and FME will furnish comprehensive guidelines and conduct self-assessment training sessions in Batangas and Cebu throughout May. Invitations containing details on the training sessions will be dispatched subsequent to the release of the advisory, according to MARINA.

The maritime agency also said in the advisory that stakeholders can contact the Shipyards Regulation Service at (02) 8525-7212 or via email at srs@marina.gov.ph for additional information on participation or contribution to the survey and training.
