Operational Excellence through Leadership and Compliance
Are you ready for towing vessel inspections? Towing vessel operators need to know how the requirements of Subchapter M may impact their business and what they should do to prepare for, and manage them. Subchapter M is complex with numerous subsections whose applicability will vary from vessels to vessel. Some important issues for operators to consider include: compliance options of Coast Guard or third party, potential pitfalls in buying or drafting a TSMS, regulatory audits v. voluntary audits, regulatory surveys, pitfalls for auditors and surveyors, as well as legal issues to be considered. We help towing vessels operators make those decisions regarding what is best for their company.
