The costs differ per type of ship. Since the 1st of July 2017 the hourly GGD Fryslân rate is € 104,85.
WHO inspection guidelines stipulate that the following areas of the ship must be in order. (The term in order is understood to mean no sign of infection or contamination, which includes vermin in any stage of development; animal reservoirs for vermin and pests; microbiological, chemical, radioactive substances or other hazards to human health; and inadequate hygiene measures):
All WHO standards have been included in a Schedule of Requirements. An inspection checklist is provided for the levels required to meet these standards as inspected by GGD Fryslân.
There are three types of certificate:
A Ship Sanitation Control Exemption Certificate (SSCEC) certifies that the ship has been inspected and found to be in order and is exempt from further inspections for a period of six months.
A Ship Sanitation Control Certificate (SSCC) entails that the ship has been inspected and certain shortcomings discovered that are listed on the certificate. These shortcomings must be repaired, or otherwise resolved, and resubmitted for inspection.
There is also an Extension of the Ship Sanitation Control Exemption Certificate (ESSCEC). A ship is not entitled to a SSCEC in the port in which it is moored. The port authorities can however issue an extension to the old certificate for a period of one month, a so-called ESSCEC.
Ship Sanitation Certificates can also be applied for at other Dutch ports. For more information visit IHR Ship Sanitation Certificates in the Netherlands.
