29 Appendix VI PAPUA NEW GUINEA SAFE SHIP MANAGEMENT CODE. ARRANGEMENT OF SECTIONS. Preamble 1. General 1.1 Definitions 1.2 Objectives 1.3 Functional Requirements for a Safe Ship Management System 2. Safety and Environmental Protection Policy 3. Owner Responsibilities and Authority 4. Designated Person 5. Master's Responsibility and Authority 6. Resources and Personnel 7. Development of Plans for Shipboard Operations 8. Emergency Preparedness 9. Reports and Analysis of Non-Conformities, Accidents and Hazardous Occurrences 10. Maintenance of the Ship and Equipment 11. Documentation 12. Owner Verification, Review and Evaluation 13. Certification, Verification and Control Preamble (1) The purpose of this Code is to provide a standard for the safe management and operation of Papua New Guinea's domestic shipping and for pollution prevention. (2) Recognising that no two shipping companies or shipowners are the same, and that ships operate a wide range of services under different conditions, the Code is based on general principles and objectives. These general principles and objectives are as applicable to a single small ship organisation as to a shipowner with a fleet of large ships. (3) The Code is expressed in broad terms so that it can have a widespread application. Clearly, different levels of management, whether shore based or at sea, will require varying levels of knowledge and awareness of the items outlined. (4) The cornerstone of good safety management is commitment from the top. In matters of safety and pollution prevention it is the commitment, competence, attitudes and motivation of all individuals at each level that determines the end result. 1. General 1.1 Definitions Code means the Papua New Guinea Safe Ship Management Code: Papua New Guinea Waters has the same meaning as in the Act. 1.2 Objectives The objectives of the Papua New Guinea Safe Ship Management Code are to ensure safety at sea, prevention of human injury or loss of life, and avoidance of damage to the environment, in particular to the marine environment, and to property
