"The decision of enrolling UASC ships into SERS was to get a fast response, assessment and guidance, enabling owner/management to decide and take proper action.
"Knowing that SERS are the most experienced is very valuable to enable fleet management to be more confident in dealing with any type of incident and knowing how to deal with them efficiently, considering the time factor.
"SERS also enable Master, DPA and technical manager to fulfil their roles and responsibilities.
"It is highly recommended for other owners to use and avail themselves of SERS service."
