This circular is addressed to all Panamanian-flagged vessel owners/operators, legal representatives, DPA, masters, and recognized organizations.
In order to improve ASI reporting and corrective actions for Panamanian-flagged vessels, please note the following:
Corrections for ASI deficiencies must be submitted within 30 days to firstname.lastname@example.org as indicated on the ASI Form's deficiency list.
Ensure the vessel's ISM manual includes this procedure. The Safety Management Certificate process considers the last flag state inspection and unresolved deficiencies will be recorded in the audit report.
Provide documented evidence (e.g., photos, survey reports, certificates, maintenance records, invoices) promptly to email@example.com for actions taken to address ASI deficiencies.
Please use the Monitoring and Correction of Deficiencies Form when submitting corrections.
Optional but appreciated: If no deficiencies are found during the flag state inspection, sending the monitoring and correction form to firstname.lastname@example.org is welcomed.
