  • Expanded best practice guidance to complement the KPIs.
  • Revised and enhanced best practice guidance to remove ambiguity and duplication.
  • Additional requirements for HSSE strategic planning, Key Performance Indicators (KPI) setting and performance monitoring, review and improvement.
  • Streamlining and merging of elements to improve consistency and make conducting the self assessment easier.
  • Enhanced guidelines for risk assessment, auditing and review ashore and onboard alsong with guidance for all related tools to be employed.
  • Introduction of updated industry legislative requirements, including latest STCW, MLC, BWMC & Polar Code issues.
  • Extensively Revised Element 6 and 6A – Cargo, Ballast, Tank Cleaning, Bunkering, Mooring and Anchoring Operations, with additional KPIs and best practice guidance.
  • Extensively Revised Element 10 – Environmental and Energy Management (previously Environmental Management) incorporates the OCIMF Energy Efficiency and Fuel Management paper that was a supplement to the TMSA 2.
  • A New element: Element 13 – Maritime Security.

The new version is also extended in length (+23% in terms of words) compared with the TMSA 2 with the key focus now being shifted to implementation as the vast majority of the ambiguities of the TMSA 2 has now been cleared.

While OCIMF is officially proceeding with publication on April 2017 this is a long awaited publication and the latest/final draft has been extensively circulated in the market as part of the ongoing awareness and consensus building effort.
