Vessel & Office Based Audit Services

Leeships technical and financial departments have regularly conducted office and shipboard audits for banks, investment houses and for shipowners that want a "spot check" on their third party managers.

Modern-day ship management is as much financial as it is technical and at Leeships the shipowner may enjoy the knowledge that each vessel has a dedicated account number where funds are deposited and utilized in line with agreed budgets ensuring clear oversight and transparency over the movement of funds. In short, Leeships puts the shipowner back in control of their money.

Audits can be in the form of:

  • Full office audit including financial and reporting systems.
  • Spare parts ordering audit.
  • Operations/technical department performance audit.
  • Communications audit .
  • Vessel based audits including full audit of spares inventory.
  • Vessel cashflow audit and analysis.
  • Crew turnover and efficiency audit.
  • Assist with training.
  • Effectively manage deficiency rectification.
  • Liaise with Port State officials.
  • PSC audit assistance and PSC (Port State Control) pre audit inspection.

Our maritime management consultants can perform a Port State Control Verification Audit aboard ships and yachts to help minimise the risk that a Port State Control (PSC) inspection could result in any deficiencies or even detentions.

Port State Control (PSC) is an internationally agreed regime for the inspection of foreign vessels in other national ports by PSC inspectors. These inspectors are tasked with verifying compliance of the vessel with the requirements of key international conventions and associated codes (e.g. ISM, ISPS, SOLAS, MARPOL, STCW, MLC).

A PSC inspection can include the following actions:
Ensuring that the vessel is manned and operated in compliance with applicable international law.
Verifying the competency of the ship’s master and officers.
Checking the condition of a vessel and its equipment.

At Leeships our dedicated maritime specialists will support you in the preparation for a PSC inspection, follow up on any corrective or preventive actions, and compose a report with recommended improvement and lessons learned.
