“Alternative Shipboard Internal Audits” – DNV GL training course



Effective implementation and verification of a (safety) management system requires periodical internal audits.

What happens when we are unable to visit the vessels or when the risk is too high? Such is often the case now with the COVID-19 crisis.

This course is designed to provide knowledge and expertise necessary to plan and conduct combined audits while the customary lead auditor is unable to visit the ship.

Within the scope of regulations and accepted audit principles and guidelines, this course will present methodologies for conducting effective audits with alternative means.

Remote verification principles and methods for implementation of both formal and informal audit procedures will be examined and applied.

Participants will receive a sound understanding of alternative and/or remote auditing techniques and processes as well as management of an internal auditing program. They will also gain an appreciation for the role and importance of internal auditing programs within the maritime industry as related to Safety and Quality Management systems and learn about the requirements laid down in the ISO 19011 standard related to the performance of the internal audits and verifications in an integrated management system.

Furthermore, techniques and tools for conducting remote management system internal audits of vessels in accordance with accepted auditing principles will be discussed.
