Control measures are required if evidence of infection or contamination is found. These measures must be agreed with and supervised by the competent authority (usually the Port Authority). The measures can be carried out by the vessel directly or by a 3rd party or by the competent authority.
If clinical signs of illness or disease and factual evidence of public health risk are found on board the competent authority shall consider the ship as affected and may disinfect, decontaminate, disinsect or de-rat the vessel or cause these measures to be carried out under its supervision; and decide the technique to be employed to secure an adequate control of the public health risk involved.
If the competent authority cannot carry out the control measures it may allow the vessel to depart but it shall inform the competent authority at the next port of entry of the evidence found and the control measures shall be noted in the SSCC.
The ship operator is responsible for keeping the vessel free from sources of infection or contamination including vectors and reservoirs. The ship operator should be able to apply control measures if evidence of infection or contamination is found.
The ship must provide a valid SSCEC or SSCC and a Maritime Declaration of Health to the competent authority when required.
Ships can expect inspecting officers from the competent authority to inspect areas, systems and services on board.
The inspections will normally be preceded by a request for information from the Master of the vessel.
If a certificate is to be issued the inspection will normally cover all areas of the ship as specified in Annex 3.
If a ship’s risk assessment and risk management systems are unsatisfactory, evidence of implementation is inadequate, or unforeseen potential hazards are identified the inspector should discuss these matters at the conclusion of the visit. Subsequently, a summary of the matters that do not comply will be confirmed in writing by the inspector on the Evidence Report Form (see Annex 7).
This will include advice given and an expected timeframe for any corrective action.
The Ship Sanitation Certificate Process
Under the International Health Regulations (IHR) (2005) Ship Sanitation Certificates have been introduced. It is recommended that these certificates comply with the IHR model Ship Sanitation Certificates as described in Annex 3 of IHR (2005).
If these model certificates are not used it is possible that competent inspecting authorities may view a certificate as invalid when presented to them.
SSCs are designed to IDENTIFY, ASSESS and RECORD any public health risks, and the consequent CONTROL MEASURES that should be taken, while the ships are in port.
State Parties are responsible for ensuring that ship operators permanently keep their vessels free from infection or contamination.
What we do
SHIPSAN® assists ship owners and managers with easy compliance of Ship Sanitation Certificate (SSC) requirements, keeping up with current legislation, records implementation and products
Documents for inspection
The general documents that could be requested according to the Convention on Facilitation of International Maritime Traffic as amended 2006 are:
1. The Maritime Declaration of Health,
2. Ship Sanitation Certificate,
3. International Certificate of Vaccination or prophylaxis,
5. Ship’s stores declaration,
6. Dangerous Goods Manifest.
In addition the following documents may be requested to assess public health risk:
* Management Plans covering for example, water bunkering, food safety, pest control, sewage or waste.
Annex 6 suggests a Model list of documents for ship inspection.
The aim of Shipsan is to achieve all the objectives of the inspection taking into account the size and type of the ship.
Superchlorination Spray Method using Shipsan
The most efficient method including Hoses, taps and pipework. The new method of Super-chlorination on a ship for drinking water systems and tank is to use use a spray method with SHIPSAN sterilant/Drinking Water Treatment. It can save days of work and eliminate unnecessary waste of water, time and money.
Shipsan is heavily diluted and uniformly sprayed througout the Potable Water Tanks on board, the pipework will need re-circulating to ensure the pipework is done too. Its results take minutes instead of hours, so no wasted waiting time. No need to empty the tank after, remove any debris and good to go. Shipsan is more effective than hypochlorite and is not corrosive to the tanks or systems. Shipsan is Supplied in 25 litre drums.
Keep a stock on board (in most cases 2-4 drums is adequate) in case of an outbreak of legionella or in case of requirement to super-chlorinate by the Port Health Authority. The product has a shelf live of 2 years in an unopened drum. Finally, Shipsan is dosed @ Refill the tank to achieve 0.2ppm at the tap or 5ppm in the tank free chlorine.

Water Safety Plans from Shipsan
Easy Water Safety Plan System Questionnaire (see Info & WSP on the main menu – lets get you started now!
CLOUD BASED ELECTRONIC CLIENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM – CONTROL*MONITOR * AUDIT*REVIEW
To Pass an inspection it is firstly necessary to carry out a risk assessment of all the relevant areas of the ship. It is then necessary to prepare a control scheme which will include monitoring procedures and control measures. This scheme will then need to be reviewed on a regular basis to make sure that the control measures that are being applied are being effective.
The WHO recommends that the issues listed on this site by area on the vessel should be considered when carrying out a risk assessment for Ship Sanitation. The ship owner or management company is capable of implementing this through their own management system, however, we offer products which will enable you to comply fully with your own system, alternatively we can offer you a complete management system if preferred.
It is now a REQUIREMENT for all ships to have a WATER SAFETY PLAN for the issuance of a Ship Sanitation Certificate.
For Requirement references and guidelines go too:
20 Minute Potable Water Safety Plan
Our 20 minute (yes it just takes about up to 20 minutes maximum to do our on-line plan! unique to your ship). Potable Water Safety Plan is written by a Water Treatment Professional and covers all current Guidelines which incorporate MLC2006 for a comprehensive monitoring, recording and logging system. It also incorporates ILO, CDC, MCA, WHO and allows for a system which will comply for the provision of issuance of a Ship Sanitation Certificate (potable water). It will ensure good quality of water on board, leading to good hygiene and minimise the risk of water-borne pathogens and biofilm and Legionnaires’ disease.
This does not require a ship visit and gives full compliance. On completion of the WSP you will be invoiced and the plan will be emailed to you in PDF format within 2 weeks of receipt of the completed application. Hard copies are available by request, postage is charged at cost to any destination.
Super-Chlorination Procedure for merchant ships 2017
Potable Water Super-Chlorination Procedure for merchant ships using Shipsan® or Sodium Hypochlorite
To be carried out at 12 monthly intervals or more frequently as required- super chlorination of potable water storage tanks and pipework (including hydrophore tank).
Whenever the potable water tanks and systems or any of their parts have been placed in service, repaired or replaced or have been contaminated, they must be cleaned and disinfected before returning to operation.
Cold Potable water storage tanks should be opened, emptied, ventilated and inspected for condition and cleanliness. The tanks should then be recoated if necessary and cleaned/disinfected. The cleaning process will involve adding SHIPSAN or an equivalent disinfectant SUCH as Sodium Hypochlorite to 50ppm and allowed to stand for a minimum of 1 hour. (at least 2 hours at 20ppm) The test should be carried out using the TEKTRAK free-chlorine High Range test procedure.
Shipsan® can be added at dilution of 1.25 litres/100litres of water to give a solution of 50ppm. Or, Sodium Hypochlorite can be added at a rate of (Typical example): To achieve 50ppm Chlorination – use 0.333ltrs of sodium hypochlorite per tonne. Please note that Sodium Hypochlorite can vary in strength dependent on the date of manufacture between 3 and 15 ppm. It has a fast depletion rate. Shipsan depletes very little in an unopened can.
Test frequently during the process (every 15 minutes), increase the amount of sodium hypochlorite as required to maintain at 50 ppm.
The tank should then be emptied and recharged with clean freshwater chlorinated to a minimum concentration of 0.2ppm free chlorine at the tap. This should be tested immediately and again after one day. A full water test should then be carried out. The procedure should be repeated if the PHA or independent lab report is not SATISFACTORY.
In addition all the potable water pipework system and (calorifiers) from machinery space to furthest outlets should be charged with Shipsan or Sodium Hypochlorite to 50ppm free chlorine for a period of 12 hours (using TEKTRAK free-chlorine HR test kit and then flushed out and refilled to a residual free chlorine level of 0.2ppm (using TEKTRAK standard chlorine test).
The procedure should not be carried out by untrained personnel. The procedure should be closely supervised. Crew should be warned that the water is heavily chlorinated in case of drinking and fumes. If the tanks contain excessive debris or scale then this concentration of debris should be pre-super-chlorinated prior to a second super-chlorination. Persons inspecting or working in freshwater tanks must wear clean protective clothing and footwear which has not been used for any other work area and they should not be suffering from any skin infection or communicable disease. Ensure that no Aerosol is produced at any stage of the cleaning or super-chlorination process..
Super-Chlorination cannot be carried out using Sodium Hypochlorite. However, it CAN be done using Shipsan® Please request a separate data sheet for this procedure. Spray method saves time, money and water.
