30/12/21, 14:56 WIB Last Updated 2022-01-06T09:23:16Z


Aside from acting as classification society, Biro Klasifikasi Indonesia (BKI) has the ability to conduct statutory survey. With networks of more than 18 branches, National and International, and also sufficient number of qualified surveyor /auditors, BKI therefore has been trusted as Recognized Organization (RO) to conduct statutory survey and certification from Indonesia and Mongolia. The authorization given to BKI is being conducted in accordance with IMO Resolution A. 739(18) and A. 789(19) and the upcoming RO Code.

The Statutory delegation given to BKI consist of maritime safety, environmental protection and seafarers welfare, which includes International Regulation (SOLAS, ICLL, MARPOL, MLC, and others) and also National Regulation. In addition, BKI is also active in conducting safet management system audit (ISM Code) even Security Management System for ships and port Facilities (ISPS Code).

In addition of those authorization, BKI’s performance can be measured from  Port State Control (PSC) statistics. Statistic at Tokyo MOU PSC shows a positive trends where the ef value gained annualy is moving towards lower value, which shows that BKI is moving in positive trends towards high performance RO.

Aside from the above duties, BKI is also participated in IMO meetings in order to be updated with the relevant International rules.

Maritime Labour Convention 2006, developed by International Labour Organization ILO), ILO is often referred to as the fourth pillar of International Maritime Law along with : SOLAS 1974, STCW 1978 and MARPOL 73/78.

In relation to the importance of implementing the MLC, 2006, BKI provides consultancy, inspection and certification of the implementation of the MLC, 2006. For countries who has ratified MLC (Maritime Labor Convention), an MLC Certificate will be issued according to the authorization given to BKI by Flag States. For others, BKI may issue a Statement Of Compliance (SOC) for MLC.

Here are procedures for issuance of MLC Certificates / Statement of Compliance (SoC)  MLC and approval of DMLC Part II Manual:


 DMLC Part II Approval

 1. Shipowner sends application of DMLC Part II approval and the manual to BKI.

 2 .BKI will send approval fee form to be approved by shipowner before commencement of work.

 3. BKI will verify compliance with DMLC Part II with the relevant regulation.

 4. If revision is required, BKI will inform the owner to revise accordingly.

 5. Once the manual has been verified to have comply with the convention, BKI will approve the DMLC Part II.



 Issuance of MLC / SOC MLC

 1. Shipowner sends application for issuance of MLC Certificate / Statement of Compliance (SOC) MLC (either for interim and / Initial).

 2. MLC Certificate / SOC application will be processed once DMLC Part II has been approved by BKI.

Port State Control (PSC) is a checking / inspection of foreign ships in the port of a country to verify that the condition of the ship and its equipment meets the requirements of international regulations as well as manned and operated in accordance with requirements such as SOLAS, MARPOL, MLC, STCW etc.

Related with the implementation of the inspection, the IMO has encouraged the establishment of a regional organization of the PSC and PSC MoU agreement - has been signed covering all the oceans of the world: Europe and the North Atlantic (Paris MoU), Asia Pacific (Tokyo MoU); Latin America (Acuerdo de Viña del Mar); Caribbean (Caribbean MoU); West and Central Africa (Abuja MoU); Black Sea region (Black Sea MOU); Mediterranean (Mediterranean MoU); Indian Ocean (Indian Ocean MoU), and the Riyadh MoU.

Ships that do not meet international regulations adopted by the States where the ships visiting their port (Port State) will face the risk of detention until the existing deficiencies have been corrected. In the event of the detention of Indonesian Ships by the States where the ship visits, BKI as a Recognized Organization, if requested, can carry out a follow-up to ensure the implementation of international regulations that will help ship owners to solve the deficiencies.

BKI will conduct a re-examination of the findings from the Port State in detail and recommends corrective actions, either permanently or temporarily, so that the ship can continue her operations and implement improvements.




International maritime shipping was appraised to have emitted 1046 million tonnes of CO2 in 2007, representing 3.3 per cent of the world global CO2 emission. It is foreseen to increase by factor two to three in 2050 in absence of reduction action (Buhaug, et al., 2009). In line with those issue, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has required implementing energy efficiency instruments included in Chapter 4 of MARPOL Annex VI. Hence, having Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) for all existing ships over 400 GT and attained Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) for new building of several ship types are mandatory from 1st January 2013.

In the national issue, based on the Peraturan Presiden RI No. 29/2012, Indonesia has formally ratified to the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL Convention), Annexes III, IV, V and VI.

Therefore to address these challenges, BKI has released the newest service namely the issuance of the Statement of Verification (SoV) for EEDI and SEEMP, including EEOI. This service is robustly supported by the GreenPADMA software to help the calculation and verification for the index of EEDI and EEOI. This calculator software was mainly equipped by reliable features that have been updated by using the latest regulation either from IMO or IACS. Some examples for these features are: the software provides 12 (twelve) different ship types in accordance with the newest regulation requierement;it has specification to calculate power from conventional propulsion system, dual fuel engine, as well as diesel electric. In addition, the software also able to calculate the installation of innovative technology in ships which was expected to facilitate the application of the energy efficiency means.

By providing those new service, BKI as a state-owned classification society shows the commitment to continuously assist customers especially the shipping industries, in order to implement new regulations effectively through the development of support tools.




The transfer of harmful aquatic organisms in ballast water which carried by ships from one place to another has had an impact on the appearance of the new species which will be a major threat for the marine ecosystems. It will be impacted on imbalance of marine ecosystems and adversely effect on the growth of marine species in the areas. Ballast Water Management Convention (BWM Convention) will enter into force on 8 September 2017, the Convention provides regulations on how to manage ship’s ballast water.

Furthermore, all ships in international traffic shall manage their ballast water and sediments in accordance with requirement of the Convention. The aims is to prevent the spread of harmful aquatic organism from one region to another, by establishing standards and procedures for the management and control of ship’s ballast water and sediments.

Implementation BWMTS

According to the report of IMO meeting MEPC 71 on 03 -07 July 2017 where schedule on the implementation BWM Convention for installations Ballast Water Management Treatment System (BWMTS) implemented in accordance with the following provisions:

·         For new ships the keels of which are laid on or after 08 September 2017 shall install BWMTS on the ships delivery.

·         For existing ships the installations of BWMTS shall be conducted on renewal survey of IOPP :

1.      The first renewal IOPP after date of implementation BWM Convention, if:

§  Due date survey on or after 08 September 2019, or

§  The survey conducted on or after 08 September 2014, but before 08 September 2017.

2.      The second renewal surveys after the date of implementation BWM Convention, if the date of first renewal survey conducted before 08 September 2019 and take note requirement in paragraph 1(b) above are not met

In the provisions of the application of the International BWM Convention on 08 September 2017. BKI may provide services by:

  1. Assistance of establishing BWM Plan;
  2. Certification of International Ballast Water Management/Compliance Statement (based on authorized authorization given to BKI).
