Ship sanitation inspections

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

A ship sanitation inspection includes an inspection of all areas of the ship assessing all of the controls in place, such as

  • waste management
  • food safety
  • vector control
  • 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.

How to arrange a ship sanitation inspection?

Inspections are carried out at the request of the ship's master or agent.

If you require a ship sanitation inspection at the Port of Workington or Port of Silloth, telephone or email us at least two working days before the inspection is required.

Before making a request, complete the Declaration of Health form, which must be completed and returned to environmental.health@allerdale.gov.uk

Within the declaration form, the following information must be given:

  • vessel name
  • gross tonnage
  • IMO number
  • location
  • estimated date and time of arrival and departure
  • agent contact details.
