We believe there should never be compromise on the safety of the guests and crew on board, and that superyacht safety management should be carried out in an efficient and economical way.

As well as offering total International Safety Management and ISPS support for our full yacht management clients we also offer our ISM/ISPS expertise as an individual service to superyachts above 500GT who are required to comply, and to yachts 499GT and below who would like to have the reassurance and value add that ISM and ISPS provide.

International Safety Management and ISPS for yachts

Find out more

We believe there should never be compromise on the safety of the guests and crew on board, and that superyacht management should be carried out in an efficient and economical way.

If you would like assistance with your mandatory ISM (International Safety Management) and ISPS (International Ship and Port Facility Security Code) requirements as a superyacht over 500GT, then we can provide comprehensive support as a standalone service.

Our safety management systems (SMS) take into account your refit and repair cycle to allow for cost effective planned maintenance. All Edge Yachts’ safety and security manuals are approved by all major Flag States*.

ISPS code compliance is a complex journey. We provide advice and guidance to ensure certification is awarded and whilst taking into account the nuances of the day-to-day running of your superyacht.

As a global security measure, and a part of the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), compliance to the ISPS Code (or International Ship and Port Facility Security Code) is mandatory for all large charter yachts over 500GT.

Our team of experienced advisors will take care you and your team from the first stages of your Ship Security Plan through surveys and audits, and extends that support to your designated Security Officer and Designated Person Ashore (DPA) roles in emergency situations.

Edge Yachts can also be your Designated Person Ashore and act as the link between your captain and crew and the owning company of your vessel. Our team of master mariners provides you with the reassurance that your DPA brings with them tens of hundreds of sea hours on superyachts, and can empathise with and resolve any situation your captain and crew are facing.

*We hold Documents of Compliance for all the major Flag States, including: Cayman Islands, Marshall Islands, Bermuda, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Malta and Jamaica [MCA/UK or US?]. Our team is also Lloyd’s Register certified.

ISM mini and custom ISM/ISPS solutions

Although full compliance is not required for superyachts 499GT and below, there are standards you need to comply with under the mini ISM regulations. It is also recommended that those yachts 499GT and below still work towards full ISM/ISPS compliance to ensure the best resale value, and that the yacht does not pose safety issues for its owner, crew and guests.

If you require support to comply with the mandatory mini ISM standards or prefer to discuss a bespoke service that meets somewhere in the middle, please reach out and we are happy to propose a custom solution.

Here at Edge Yachts we offer full management of all ISM and ISPS requirements for superyachts of all sizes. We also offer a mini ISM that covers the mandatory safety measures for yachts below 500GT, and custom ISMs for those who want to ensure safety remains paramount, without undertaking every part of a full ISM/ISPS audit.

Our service includes safety and security manuals tailored to each yachts needs, provision of DPA and DOC for all major Flag States, on going support for all operational and planned maintenance systems on board, and 24/7 shoreside emergency support.
