|Date issued:||21 May 2009|

Atlantic Eagle's safety management system procedures for record keeping had not been effectively implemented on board the ship, were not followed with regard to the grounding and its aftermath and no attempt was made by the ships managers to correct the situation.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that Atlantic Bulk Carriers Management takes safety action to address this safety issue.
