From 1 January 2020 new IMO requirements came into force concerning the periodic servicing of life saving appliances. Resolution MSC.402(96) also amends the requirements for authorization of service providers carrying out the periodic servicing.
In short, owners and operators must ensure that all inspections and maintenance (examinations, operational tests, overhaul and repair) of equipment are carried out by personnel certified by an authorized party for each make and type/model of equipment to be worked on.
With a global network of trained and certified engineers, SeaSafe services life-saving appliances (LSA) and firefighting equipment (FFE) from more than 40 manufacturers. It has been audited by DNV GL to meet the new IMO requirements and authorized by the Panama and Liberia flags with approval from Bahamas expected soon.
