The future of ship inspection
In connection with the Danish Maritime Fair, the Danish Maritime Authority organizes an exciting workshop on future ship inspection under the title "Ship Inspection in the future - or Safety Certification". Jan Fritz Hansen, Thomas Mørk and Øssur Hilduberg will participate
There has been a great development in the Danish Maritime Authority's handling of the supervision of passenger ships and fishing vessels over the last five years. The Danish Maritime Authority organizes and invites to a debate on the future of ship inspection in connection with the Danish Maritime Fair.
The Danish Maritime Authority believes that a ship does not automatically have a good safety, although they comply with the applicable regulations. There is therefore the possibility to focus more on the safety of supervision than there are today.
At the workshop, the Danish Maritime Authority will present the lessons that have been learnt over the last five years in connection with the Agency's new supervisory approach. There will also be a discussion forum regarding the purpose of the inspections and the objective of improving safety on board. To ensure a good and lively debate, following debaters will participate in the panel discussion.
