Ship Sanitation: Sequence of Inspection Areas Mobile App
The Ship Sanitation: Sequence of Inspection Areas mobile app provides guidance for preparing and performing ship inspection, completing the certificates and applying public health measures within the framework of International Health Regulations.
How does it work?
It is intended to be used as reference material for port health officers, regulators, ship operators and other competent authorities in charge of implementing the health measures onboard ships. The app proposes a sequence of inspection areas to be implemented in the ship’s procedures manual. It follows the rationale that clean areas should be inspected first, followed by technical areas. This sequence enables the inspectors to avoid cross-contamination. In some critical areas like galleys, inspectors should demonstrate good hygiene practice by wearing clean disposable clothing (e.g. aprons, gloves, hair covering).
