Depends on who is doing the regulating, inspecting and enforcement.

Which is why you have flags of convenience.

For the ship itself (as opposed to cargo or supplies, which will likely be a mess unless they're in sturdy air-tight containers), my guess is that this depends on the type of ship - I'd expect a military craft or a paramilitary craft like a Type S Scout to be completely fine, and just require a good cleaning and a refresh of the life support system, since my guess is such ships are designed to suffer minimal effects from vacuum. OTOH, a civilian vessel would likely not be built to handle short-term vacuum exposure and might well require some major refits of furnishings, and perhaps more serious damage.
