Details about ship sanitation inspections and ships water sampling.

Ships that travel internationally require a valid sanitation certificate every six months under World Health Organisation guidelines.

A ship sanitation inspection includes an inspection of all areas of the ship assessing all of the controls in place.

This includes areas such as waste management, food safety and portable water and infection.

Following an inspection, an environmental health officer will issue either a Ship Sanitation Exemption Certificate of Ship Sanitation Control Certificate, which is valid for six months.
