What is RightShip?
RightShip is the world’s biggest third party maritime due diligence organization, providing expertise in global safety, sustainability and social responsibility practices.
The objective of the RightShip inspections is to assess the quality of ships, verify the familiarity and compliance of ship’s crew with the safety, statutory requirements, industry recommendations, best practices and required items within the RightShip Inspection Ship Questionnaire. The outcome of the RightShip Dry Inspection will reflect the actual condition and standard of operation of the vessel at the time of inspection.
What is Rightship Inspection Questionnaire (RISQ)?
Rightship Inspection Questionnaire is the most comprehensive inspections tool in dry bulk. In 2021, RightShip announced a new, expanded inspections questionnaire designed to enhance its risk assessment service and support shipowners and managers improve dry bulk standards beyond compliance. The questionnaire now focuses on several different vessel types and is designed to deliver an improved inspection result. The expanded scope of inspections covers statutory items as well as recommended and desirable items with reference to IMO, ISO, ILO, OCIMF, ICS, P&I Loss Prevention Bulletins, maritime publications and industry codes of practice.
The RightShip Inspection Ship Questionnaire covers a series of questions related to safety, environmental protection, maintenance, industry recommendations and good practices. For inspection purposes the vessels covered in RightShip inspection are grouped into five categories:
1. Bulk carriers that are carrying solid bulk cargoes other than grain
2. Bulk carriers that are carrying grain cargoes
3. General cargo ships that are carrying general and/or container cargoes
4. Container ships that are carrying container cargoes
5. Livestock carriers that are carrying live export of sheep, cattle, and goats (TBC)
