In yachting each member has their own role.

All yachts over 500 GT managed by World Yacht Group are provided with an ISM (International Safety Management). The ISM is a requirement for all commercial yachts over 500Tn that ensures quality control for safety, environmental protection, prevention of human injury or loss of life and communication between yacht crew and management personal ashore.
A “Mini – ISM” has been also created for all commercial vessels managed by World Yacht Group under 500GT and over 300GT.
Our management team provides everything a yacht needs from a shore based organization in full compliance with the ISPS (International Ship and Port Facility Security Code). We survey the yacht and then submit an assessment and plan to the flag state. The International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code is an amendment to the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) on minimum security arrangements for ships, ports and government agencies.
* ISPS is applied for all vessels over 500Tn.
