ISM Code


International Safety Management Code


IMO logo

Safety is Red Funnel’s first priority and won’t be compromised.

Therefore Red Funnel has complied with the mandatory International Safety Management Code since 1997 to ensure the safety of passengers, crew, vessels and the environment.

The ISM Code provides an international standard for the safe management and operation of ships and for pollution prevention.

It’s objectives are:

  • To ensure safety at sea;
  • The prevention of human injury or loss of life;
  • The avoidance of damage to the environment, in particular the marine environment;
  • The avoidance of damage to property.

The ISM was introduced by the International Maritime Organisation, part of the United Nations, in the late 1990s following research which showed that 80% of all accidents at sea are caused by ‘human error’. These accidents all occurred to ships that were otherwise well found and meeting all relevant codes, regulations and certification standards. Therefore it was found that instead of ‘human error’ these accidents were largely caused by ‘management system failure’.
