Ship Survey and Certification


Harmonized system of ship survey and certification enters into force on 3 February 2000A harmonized system of survey and certification covering international shipping regulations adopted by the International Maritime Organization enters into force on 3 February 2000.

The system covers survey and certification requirements of the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), 1974, the International Convention on Load Lines, (LL) 1966 and the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, 1973.

All these instruments require the issuing of certificates to show that requirements have been met and this has to be done by means of a survey, which can involve the ship being out of service for several days. The harmonized system will alleviate the problems caused by survey dates and intervals between surveys, which do not coincide, so that a ship should no longer have to go into port or the repair yard for a survey required by one convention shortly after doing the same thing in connection with another instrument.
