ISM Code (International Safety Management), established by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), promotes a safety culture and requires that a company develop a Safety Management System (SMS).  This process allows a company to give safety and environmental protection the priority in their operations.  CEC has obtained the relevant Document of Compliance and Safety Management Certificates for their individuals operations.  All CEC vessels undergo internal and external audits in order to maintain compliance.

ISPS Code (International Ship and Port Facility Security), established by the IMO, is a set of measures to enhance the security of vessels and facilities.  The ISPS Code is implemented through chapter XI-2 Special measures to enhance maritime security in the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), 1974. The Code has two parts, one mandatory and one recommendatory.  All vessels undergo internal and external audits, as appropriate, in order to maintain compliance.
