Decisions and interpretations

Ships decree 2004

 

1 Exemptions of requirements on the National Safety Certificate

Ships decree 2004

Exemptions of requirements on the National Safety Certificate
If the (inter)national requirements do not prescribe that a separate exemption certificate needs to be issued, it is sufficient if the approved exemptions are recorded on the National Safety Certificate cross-referencing the relevant item. This is not the case for example COLREGs, a separate exemption certificate needs to be issued. 

2 Annual inspections of radio equipment on non-SOLAS ships (13-11)

According to Ships Decree 2004 articles 41.1 and 41.5, the requirements of SOLAS chapters IV and V are equally applicable to ships for which a National Safety Certificate is required.
Furthermore article 41.2 of the Ships Decree 2004 determines that for the application of SOLAS chapter IV, a cargo ship of less than 300 GT is treated equally as a cargo ship of 300 GT.

In practice this means that the EPIRB on board of non-SOLAS ships is subject to an annual test in accordance with SOLAS chapter IV regulation 15.9.

Furthermore AIS equipment on board of non-SOLAS ships is also subject to an annual test in accordance with SOLAS chapter V regulation 18.9.

3 Marking of the Safety Plan

Marking of the Safety Plan (Tripartite 11-02)
According to SOLAS, the Fire Control Plan needs to be approved by the (RO on behalf of the) Administration. For the Safety Plan there is no such requirement. For NSI it is sufficient that the RO marks the Safety Plan with a minimum of noted (or equivalent term used by the RO), meaning that it is verified that a Safety Plan was drawn up and available for placement on board concerning vessel.

Clarification of approval content of medicine chest (13-08)
Article 6 of the Annex 5 of the Regulation safety seagoing vessels states the requirement regarding the annual inspection and endorsement of the content of the medicines and medical equipment:

Article 6 - Annual inspection of medical supplies and equipment

  1. The annual inspection of medicines and medical equipment shall precede the investigations to which the ship is subject in connection with the necessary certification. The inspection does not involve the medical provisions of life rafts as defined in Article 3.

  2. For the inspection, the captain shall compile a checklist comprising the names and codes of all medicines, medical equipment and antidotes that this annex requires, and shall include on this the quantities dictated and the actual quantities present on board. Where appropriate, the expiry dates of the substances are to be quoted. The checklist also quotes the ship's name, flag and homeport.

  3. If the inspection reveals that the ship's medical supplies conform to the requirements of this annex, the captain will sign the checklist and submit it to the Shipping Inspectorate or to the legal body appointed for this purpose under the provisions of Article 23 of these regulations.

Based on article 2.4.7 of Annex I of the Agreement between the Netherlands and the Recognised Organisations, ROs are authorised to countersign the relevant checklist of the medical equipment when satisfied with the results of the survey as referenced in abovementioned article.

6 Medical chest Domperidon

As required by Article 25 (with reference to Annex 5) of the Regulation Safety seagoing vessels, the Medical Chest aboard Dutch Flagged vessels should contain Domperidon 60mg suppositories. Recently the production of Domperidon 6Omg suppositories has ceased. Domperidon 30mg suppositories are still readily available and will until further notice be allowed to replace the 6Omg variety. The total dose should be equivalent to the required dose, i.e.: 5x Domperidon 60mg may be replaced by 10x Domperidon 30mg.

 

 

7 Speedlog requirement vessels

The evaluation of the Netherlands Ships Decree 2004 has been finalised and one of the subjects which was agreed upon was that the speedlog requirement for ships<300 GT will be deleted in article 24 of the "Regeling Veiligheid Zeeschepen". Due to size and manoeuvrability of these kind of vessels the speedlog is not required (also if ECDIS is used as a primary means of navigation).
