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):Β 

(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.
