  1. Purpose
    The aim of these Guidelines is to provide additional guidance on the content of the Ship Construction File (SCF) to be provided upon delivery of new bulk carriers and oil tankers in accordance with SOLAS regulation II-1/3-10.4, kept on board the ship and/or ashore and updated as appropriate throughout the ship's life in order to facilitate safe operation, maintenance, survey, repair and emergency measures. It is to be noted that parts of the content of the SCF may be subject to various degrees of restricted access and that such documentation may be appropriately kept ashore as indicated in these Guidelines.

  2. Definition
    Tier II
    items means the functional requirements included in the  International Goal-based Ship Construction Standards for Bulk Carriers and Oil Tankers, adopted by resolution MSC 287(87).

  3. Scope of information

    The SCF should include the list of documents constituting the SCF and all information listed in the annex, which is required for a ship's safe operation, maintenance, survey, repair and in emergency situations. Details of specific information that is not considered to be critical to safety might be included directly or by reference to other documents.

    3.2 When developing an SCF, all of the columns in the table annexed to these Guidelines should be reviewed to ensure that all necessary information has been provided.

    3.3 It may be possible to provide information listed in the annex under more than one Tier II functional requirement as a single item within the SCF, for example, the Coating Technical File required by the PSPC1 is relevant for both "Coating life" and "Survey during construction".

  4. Availability and storage
    The SCF should remain with the ship and, in addition, be available to its classification society and flag State throughout the ship's life. Where information not considered necessary to be on board is stored ashore, procedures to access this information should be specified in the onboard SCF. The intellectual property provisions within the SCF should be duly complied with.

  5. Updates
    The SCF should be updated throughout the ship's life at any major event, including, but not limited to, substantial repair and conversion, or any modification to the ship structure.

Appendix List of information

Appendix - List of information to be included in the ship construction file (SCF)

* Performance standard for protective coatings for dedicated seawater ballast tanks in all types of ships and double-side skin spaces of bulk carriers, adopted by the Organization by resolution MSC.215(82).



  1. "SCF-specific" means documents to be developed especially to meet the requirements of these Guidelines.

  2. "Key construction plans" means plans such as midship section, main O.T. and W.T. transverse bulkheads, construction profiles/plans, shell expansions, forward and aft sections in cargo tank (or hold) region, engine-room construction, forward construction and stern construction drawings.

  3. "Yard plans" means a full set of structural drawings, which include scantling information of all structural members.

  4. "Hull form" means a graphical or numerical representation of the geometry of the hull. Examples would include the graphical description provided by a lines plan and the numerical description provided by the hull form data stored within an onboard computer.

  5. "Lines plan" means a special drawing which is dedicated to show the entire hull form of a ship.

  6. "Equivalent (to Lines plan)" means a set of information of hull form to be indicated in key construction plans for SCF purposes. Sufficient information should be included in the drawings to provide the geometric definition to facilitate the repair of any part of the hull structure.

  7. "Normal storage location" means a standard location where each SCF information item should be stored. However, those items listed as being on board in the table above should be on board as a minimum to ensure that they are transferred with the ship on a change of owner.

  8. "Shore archive" is to be operated in accordance with applicable international standards.
