MarineCFO’s Laura Martin earns Subchapter M auditor status


(HOUMA, La.) — MarineCFO has announced that Laura Martin, vice president of sales and client relations, has earned her certification as a Subchapter M and ISM lead auditor. 

“MarineCFO is committed to the inland and offshore maritime marketplace," Martin said. ”We feel it’s important to not only understand the needs of the vessel operators but also to put ourselves in the shoes of the safety inspectors and auditors who serve them so we can better understand how to provide products that contribute to the safety of our customers and prospective customers.”

Through a weeklong course led by Decatur Marine, Martin got an in-depth review of Subchapter M and ISM regulations, and full orientation into what the U.S. Coast Guard and ISO are expecting when a vessel is audited to meet these standards. General provisions for conducting both internal and external audits and surveys were covered, as were suggestions for handling observations and non-conformities found during the audit processes. Reporting information and requirements for deliverables to the vessel owner were explained in great depth.
