Doniarsal Nurdin


This research aims to find out and analyze the implementation of the 3 codes in the International Safety Management Code (ISM Code) such as: Maintenance of the ship and equipment; Company verification, review and evaluation; Certification and periodical verification; whether implement been done according to the standards and regulations that exist in the Shipping Company. This research was conducted at a Shipping Company (SC) and an Organization Recognized by the Government of Indonesia (RO) as supervisor of the National Shipping Company, on July 2018. Qualitative approach with in-depth interviews, observations, documents review, and focus groups discussions (FGD), where the author determine in advance the independent aspects such as: qualification of supervisors; availability of supervisors; supervision policies and procedures; method of supervision; surveillance equipment; and budget. In SC with 5 informants as technical superintendent, marine superintendent, auditor and designated person ashore (DPA), while in RO there were 4 informants who were all auditors. The results show that in SC: auditor who concurrently act as marine superintendent do not yet receive training on the ISM Code and certainly do not have the capacity as supervisors; auditors and DPA are still less than the number of vessels managed; in RO: auditors are still less than the number of vessels that must be supervised; budgets, especially incentives that are no longer put into effect, need to be reviewed, because the reduction in take home pay for auditors will certainly affect their performance.
