Subchapter M Bringing Bluewater Safety Management Into Brown Waters

The Subchapter M regulation coming into effect will have the same impact on smaller vessels as the International Safety Management (ISM) standard has on larger vessels. This will create a large business process and systems challenge for small boat operators. The ABS Nautical Systems Software has long supported compliance with ISM for the marine industry and understands the challenges owners and operators will face when implementing a Subchapter M compliant Safety Management System.
