In an effort to make the operators show stronger commitment to safety and environmental protection, OCIMF introduced in 2004 the TMSA programme – Tanker Management & Self-Assessment. It is a programme of best management practices that calls for the operators to assess their procedures and SMS and decide the plan of action for improvement, through the processes of Plan – Act – Measure – Improve. In 2017, the third edition of TMSA was introduced, with the relevant revised Key Performance Indicators and the revised best practices guidance. The operator defines on their own the level their SMS has reached and using specific tools, examples of which are shown in Chapter 4, can achieve moving up to a higher level of conformance, and therefore improve his practices.
