IACS has revised Recommendation 74 "Guide to managing maintenance in accordance with the requirements of the ISM Code" in August 2018
IACS, International Association of Classification Societies, has recently updated their guide to managing maintenance in accordance with the requirements of the ISM Code - Rev.2 August 2018 (IACS Recommendation 74).
The guide is to assist ship operators in meeting the requirements of the ISM Code with respect to shipboard maintenance and to provide guidance on the development and improvement of maintenance management systems by establishing the principles on which they should be based, and by identifying their fundamental elements.
The objective must be to ensure the safe and reliable operation of the ship and its equipment, and compliance with all the applicable regulations. How this is achieved will depend on the size and complexity of the company and the types of ships that it operates.
