The present study comprises of an analysis of the International Safety Management Code (ISM code), as well as that of the International Quality Standard ISO 9001, as they are currently used in maritime companies. The main purpose of the study is to identify the similarities between the latter and the former and to potentially combine them, in order to set an Integrated Management System for a maritime company. An extensive overview of the International Safety Management Code, along with an overview of the International Maritime Organization -and of its contribution to the creation of the ISM Code after the marine accidents of M/T PRESTIGE and M/V HERALD OF FREE ENTERPRISE, is presented on the first chapter of this study. Moreover, the contribution of the Recognized Organizations and the Port State Control Offices to the proper application of the Code is investigated herein. The causes, which led to quality standards as the International Quality Standard ISO 9001 to be enacted, are analyzed on the second chapter. Furthermore, the International Organization of Standardization is presented. The implementation of the International Quality Standard ISO 9001 on maritime companies and a definition of the Integrated Management System are presented on the third chapter. The chapter's focal point is a potential combination of a mandatory code, as the ISM Code, with an optional quality standard, as the ISO 9001, on the daily operation of the maritime market.
