According to the OECD the percentage of sub-standard ships in the world commercial fleet is estimated to be between 10-15%.
The industry solution to this problem is represented by the vetting inspections which are
performed on different types of vessels among them the bulk carriers.The vetting inspections create a strong commercial incentive for the ship owner to comply to the vetting inspection requirements since the outcome of these inspections will determine if the ship gets cargo or not.
A RIGHTSHIP INSPECTION PROVIDES A VALIDATION OF A VESSELâ€™S CONDITION AND MANAGEMENT SYSTEM. RightShip may require a physical inspection of a vessel by experienced inspectors before it will consider recommending the vessel to customers.
RightShip holds itself out as an independent ship vetting company that provides reliable and transparent ratings for virtually any commercial vessel afloat. Users log into RightShipâ€™s Ship Vetting Information System (SVIS) and enter basic information about the proposed voyage. RightShip analyzes the userâ€™s request and its own database of information on the vessel. Based on this information, RightShip provides a 1- to 5-star rating, which indicates whether the vessel is acceptable for the voyage or requires further review.
On this course you will learn how to use the RightShip which provides a comprehensive vetting tool for ships transporting dry bulk and help you to manage your risk. Vetting inspections, observations and findings are analysed to give the trainees, the tools to prepare and proactively respond to the various issues related to vetting controls.
