How should the master periodically review the SMS and report its deficiencies to shore management?

By regularly (at intervals specified in the SMS, but of not more than one year): 

(1) evaluating the SMS for deficiencies in its suitability, completeness and effectiveness; (2) reporting the evaluation to the DPA and suggesting improvements and modifications; and (3) recording the report. The master’s review should aid the Company in its management review and result in modifications to the SMS.

Can the maximum one year interval between internal audits ever be exceeded?

What guidance does the MCA give in MSN 1826 regarding the master’s review?
