Guidance has been improved to complement key performance indicators and remove ambiguity for users. This new publication includes updated industry legislative requirements, including the Ballast Water Management Convention and the Polar Code.

The streamlining of elements ensures consistency and straightforwardness in the self assessment process. The Environmental and Energy Management Element has also been revised to incorporate the OCIMF Energy Efficiency and Fuel Management paper that was a supplement to TMSA2.
 

In addition to the print format, the TMSA programme includes an online tool for recording self assessment, providing ship operators with an interactive and constantly evolving platform to monitor and improve their performance.

The OCIMF Tanker Management and Self Assessment (TMSA) programme consists of a book, a matching online tool for recording the self assessment and a database for sharing reports. In February 2017 TMSA was integrated into the Ship Inspection Report Programme (SIRE).



The TMSA programme complements IMO Conventions, Codes and Circulars and is intended to encourage self-regulation and promote continuous improvement to enhance the safety of merchant shipping. Implementation of IMO Conventions, Codes and Circulars is achieved by companies establishing an effective safety management system (SMS), covering both ship and shore management processes. An effective SMS is also required for companies to achieve HSSE excellence.



The TMSA encourages companies to assess their own SMS against set key performance indicators (KPIs) and provides a minimum expectation (level 1) and three further levels of increasing best practice guidance, which a company may wish to apply in their SMS to improve ship management safety performance. Through self assessment, companies are encouraged to use ship management assessment results to develop phased improvement plans that can be applied across their entire fleet and to share their TMSA self assessments with potential charterers using the TMSA database.



The TMSA offers a standard framework for assessment of a company’s SMS. It sets out 13 elements of management practice that are essential for the effective management and operation of vessels. Companies can measure their SMS against the KPIs in each element and decide whether they have achieved a particular level in that element and, therefore, provide a clear, objective picture of performance. Importantly, the levels in the TMSA help the company identify gaps in current performance and areas where performance can be enhanced.
