Audits and Surveys

The combination of due dates for audits, surveys and internal structural exams for each vessel means complying with Subchapter M can be a confusing and time-consuming project when you are already busy keeping America’s cargoes moving. Rushing Marine’s network of qualified Auditors and Surveyors located strategically throughout the inland river system is here to help keep you in compliance so you can focus on your business.

TSMS Management Audits

A thorough review of your documentation and interviews with personnel will help ensure your procedures and documentation meet the TSMS requirements found in Subchapter M, and that your TSMS has been implemented throughout all levels of your organization.

Vessel Audits

Our auditors will examine documentation, interview personnel, examine vessel equipment, witness system testing, and observe personnel training, including drills, to verify TSMS effectiveness onboard your vessels.

Vessel Surveys

If you've chosen to utilize the internal survey option, our qualified surveyors can work under the oversight of your TPO to examine your vessel's systems, equipment, and procedures to ensure it and its equipment remain suitable for service.

Coast Guard Option Reviews

For those choosing the Coast Guard option to comply with Subchapter M, an internal review of your documentation and vessels allows you to resolve any problems before undergoing a Coast Guard inspection, which could expedite the issuance of your Certificates of Inspection.

Drydock and Internal Structural Examinations

Upon obtaining a COI, each vessel must begin undergoing drydock and internal structural examinations. Whether you need assistance setting up your drydock and ISE program, actually conducting the surveys, or both, we are here to help.
