Shore Based Maintenance (SBM) Certificates
Our service team, combined with our engineers, has a huge experience when it comes to supporting companies with our Shore Based Maintenance (SBM) Certificate of all equipment within our portfolio. With the presence of our company group (JRC/Alphatron Marine/Pronav AS) in all the main ports of the world, we bring forth an additional safeness, giving them the guarantee that they will be assisted in all cases.
To be enabled to issue a "simple" SBM Certificate is not that simple, and should be faced as very serious and important. The subject is so serious that IMO decided to take the necessary measures, and explicitly show the requirements of a company that decides to issue such certificate. For the client himself, hiring a company that isn't suitably prepared, can bring serious problems in the future.
According to IMO Resolution A.702(17), companies that provide SBM Certificates to be kept with the owner, on board, must ensure maitenance and service support, as well as repair facilities on a "call-out" basis.
To our clients, we, therefore, recommend that SBM Certificates be dealt with reliable companies that have business agreements with their partners. This ensures that the IMO resolution is being faithfully followed.
