Who will carry out audits and issue the DOC to a Company that operates a multi- flagged fleet?

Such a Company should approach the relevant flag State Administrations proposing a plan of action and requesting agreement by all parties on which entity will carry out which part of the auditing and certification process. The DOC may be issued by the flag State Administration, an organization recognized by the Administration, or at the request of the Administration by another Contracting Government. (MSC/Circ. 762)
