The management of shipboard maintenance is often regarded as an entirely technical matter, somehow unrelated to safety and pollution prevention, and the exclusive responsibility of the technical staff. As a result, shipboard maintenance is the least-developed and weakest element in many management systems. This increases the risks to personnel, property and the environment, and can result in substantial costs arising from repairs and operational delays. It not only threatens ISM certification, but also increases the risk of port state control detentions.
