|Background:||Why this Safety Advisory Notice was developed|
The International Safety Management (ISM) Code requires ship owners to ensure that each ship's master is given all necessary support to fulfil their duties. However, Jevkon Oil and Gas did not provide the necessary support either before the commencement of the delivery voyage or after the ship's crew began having difficulties using the intermediate fuel oil in the main engine and started drifting in the Indian Ocean.
