In recent years H4 Maritime has undertaken projects in a number of countries including:
Where Captain Howell undertook a major review and analysis of the operations of the Hong Kong Marine Department making recommendations on surveyor training, amendments to local craft regulations, responses to the conclusions of a formal accident review, and the introduction of safety management systems in local craft.
Where an analysis of the existing primary and secondary legislation allowed him to draft a wholly new Seafarer's Code to give effect to the MLC for Georgia.
Where a gap analysis of existing regulations and procedures led to recommendations on changes to the existing laws and procedures aimed at aligning the registry and management processes with international best practice.
Where, a workshop on the effects of, and the best approaches to, implementing the MLC for Azerbaijan was undertaken.
Where a workshop on implementing ISO:9001 for Georgia and a range of neighbouring counries was run as part of a major EU project.
Isle of Man and Cayman Islands
