Show Complete Document History
The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:
This guide provides information relevant to the development and implementation of a marine vessel structural inspection process. It is intended to provide considerations for owners, operators, shipyards, and designers who are involved in planning, organizing, and executing a structural survey plan that covers all stages of a marine vessel's operating life, including the design, construction, and in-service periods. This guide also provides the basis for development of a recommended corrective action plan for typical structural deficiencies or deviations, or both.
1.1 This guide covers information to develop and implement a marine vessel inspection process. It is intended to provide considerations for persons interested in planning, organizing, and implementing a structural survey plan for a marine vessel, especially during the design phase of the vessel. It is intended to be used in conjunction with any other required inspection or survey requirements but can form the basis for such planning in the absence of other such applicable requirements.
1.2 This guide provides owners, operators, shipyards, and designers with a plan for developing a detailed inspection process that covers all stages of the operating life of a marine vessel, including the design, construction, and in-service periods. This plan may be developed and used in concert with classification society and flag state surveys and inspections.
1.3 This guide also provides the basis for development of a recommended corrective action plan for typical structural deficiencies or deviations, or both.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.5 All portions of this guide may not be applicable to all vessels or shipyards since many yard-specific standards to ensure contracted level of quality are in existence.
