When implementing a management or compliance system such as the ISM, ISPS or MLC-2006, there are various supporting documents that go with it. We deal with these documents on a regular basis. Below is a brief explanation of the most common documents found in these systems. Does one of the documents below apply to you? Are you looking for a partner to help you to implement them? Then contact us. 


Passenger registration

Passenger registration is applicable for passenger ships, sailing under the Dutch Flag, to and from ports within the EU with more than 12 passengers. The exact guidelines are listed in European Directive 98/41/EC. Rood Boven Groen is a recognized passenger registrar and has experience with drafting and applying for a passenger registration system and is happy to help you achieve this.

Crew plan

The crew plan forms the basis for the crew certificate or Minimum Safe Manning Document, which is required for every seagoing vessel. In the crew plan, the shipowner indicates the minimum number of crew members he expects to be able to safely manage the ship in a desired sailing area. Functions and procedures for various operations on board are described in this plan. After approval of the crew plan by ILT, the crew certificate can be applied for. We would be happy to advise you on drawing up a crew plan and can, if desired, completely unburden you with the application.

Sail training manual

Sailing ships sailing under the special purpose certificate must have a sail training manual approved by the government.

Rood Boven Groen has developed, thanks to its broad experience in the field of great sailing ships, a sail training manual that has been approved by ILenT.

SOLAS training manual

SOLAS stands for 'Safety Of Lifes At Sea' and was established in 1914 after the disaster on board the Titanic. SOLAS describes the requirements in terms of construction, equipment and crew. The SOLAS training manual is a practical guide on the use of all rescue equipment on board. Do you need a SOLAS training manual? We are happy to help you.



When oil pollution occurs at sea, this quickly spreads over the water. This environmental pollution often has enormous consequences for nature and its inhabitants and can lead to major financial damage. Because prevention is better than curing, a SOPEP plan has been created. SOPEP stands for Ship Oil Pollution Emergency Plan. As indicated in MARPOL 73/78 under Annex I, all vessels of 400GT or more are obliged to have an 'oil prevention plan' according to the standards and guidelines as drawn up by the IMO. For oil tankers these rules apply from 150GT, because the oil is part of the cargo and in that respect forms a double risk. Is a SOPEP plan also applicable for your ship and are you looking for a partner to help you implement this? Then contact us.


Ship energy efficiency management plan

A Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) applies to vessels from off 400GT and is required by MARPOL from 1 January 2013. The SEEMP is a list of measures to optimize and monitor the energy efficiency on board.
