Annex 05 Owner''s inspection report


Structural condition

Annex 06 Principles for planning document


1 A planning document is intended to identify critical structural areas and to stipulate the minimum extent, locations and means for close-up survey and thickness measurements with respect to sections and internal structures as well as to nominate suspect areas.

2 The document should be worked out by the owner in co-operation with the Administration well in advance of the survey.

3 The basis for nomination of tanks and areas referred to in 1 is a risk assessment in considerations of possible deteriorations where the following elements on the particular ship are taken into account:
.1 design features such as extent of high-tensile steel and local details;
.2 former history available at owner's and Administration offices with respect to corrosion, cracking, buckling, indents and repairs for the particular ship as well as similar ships;
.3 information from same offices with respect to type of cargo, use of different tanks for cargo/ballast, corrosion-prevention system and condition of coating, if any.

4 The degree of criticality should be judged and decided on the basis of recognized principles and practice.

5 The planning document should contain:
.1 main particulars;
.2 plan of tanks;
.3 list of tanks with information on use, protection and condition of coating;
.4 corrosion risk nomination of tanks;
.5 design risk nomination of structures;
.6 nomination of tanks and areas for close-up survey;
.7 nomination of sections and structures for thickness measurements; and
.8 list of acceptable corrosion allowance of different structures.

Annex 07 Procedures for certification of a company engaged in thickness measurements of hull structures


1 Application

This guidance applies for certification of the company which intends to engage in the thickness measurement of hull structures of ships.

2 Procedures for certification

Submission of documents

2.1 The following documents should be submitted to an organization recognized by the Administration for approval :
.1 Outline of the company, e.g. organization and management structure.
.2 Experience of the company on thickness measurement of hull structures of ships.
.3 Technicians' careers, i.e. experience of technicians as thickness measurement operators, technical knowledge and experience of hull structure, etc. Operators should be qualified according to a recognized industrial NDT Standard.
.4 Equipment used for thickness measurement such as ultrasonic testing machines and their maintenance/calibration procedures.
.5 A guide for thickness measurement operators.
.6 Training programmes for technicians for thickness measurement.
.7 Measurement record format in accordance with recommended procedures for thickness measurements (see annex 10).

Auditing of the company

2.2 Upon reviewing the documents submitted with satisfactory results, the company should be audited in order to ascertain that the company is duly organized and manacled in accordance with the documents submitted, and eventually is capable of conducting thickness measurement of the hull structure of ships.

2.3 Certification is conditional upon an on-board demonstration of thickness measurement as well as satisfactory reporting.

3 Certification

3.1 Upon satisfactory results of both the audit of the company referred to in 2.2 and the demonstration tests referred to in 2.3, the Administration or organization recognized by the Administration should issue a Certificate of Approval as well as a notice to the effect that the thickness measurement operation system of the company has been certified.

3.2 Renewal/endorsement of the certificate should be made at intervals not exceeding 3 years by verification that original conditions are maintained.

4 Report of any alteration to the certified thickness measurement operation system
In any case where alteration to the certified thickness measurement operation system of the company is made, such an alteration should be immediately reported to the organization recognized by the Administration. Re-audit should be made where deemed necessary by the organization recognized by the Administration.

5 Withdrawal of the certification

The certification may be withdrawn in the following cases:
.1 where the measurements were improperly carried out or the results were improperly reported;
.2 where the surveyor found any deficiencies in the approved thickness measurement operation system of the company;
.3 'where the company failed to report any alteration referred to in 4 to the organizationrecognized by the Administration as required.

Annex 08 Reporting principles

2.4 Identification of pressure-tested tanks.

3 Results of the survey

3.1 Coating condition of each tank (if applicable). Identification of tanks with anodes.

3.2 Structural condition of each tank:
- identified tank found in satisfactory condition. Otherwise identification of findings which should be corrected or recorded, such as:
corrosion: - structure members
- type of corrosion (pitting, general)
- extent
cracks (location)
buckling (location)
indents (location)
The narrative report may be supplemented by sketches/photos of damages/repairs.

3.3 Thickness measurement report endorsed by the attending surveyor.

4 Actions to possible findings

4.1 Repair in identified tanks:
- structural member
- repair method
- repair extent

4.2 Recorded findings considered not to necessitate immediate repairs. Memoranda for future inspections and thickness measurements should be given, e.8. for areas found as suspect with respect to corrosion (see 1.2.6 of the guidelines).

4.3 Condition of class/flag State requirements.
The structure of the reporting contents may be different, depending on the report system for the Administration.

Annex 11 Guidelines for technical assessment in conjunction with the planning of enhanced surveys for oil tankers

Annex 12 Criteria for longitudinal strength of hull girder for oil tankers


1 General

1.1 These criteria should be used for the evaluation of longitudinal strength of the ship's hull girder as required by paragraph 8.1.1.1.

1.2 In order that ship’s longitudinal strength to be evaluated can be recognized as valid, fillet welding between longitudinal internal members and hull envelopes should be in sound condition so as to keep integrity of longitudinal internal members with hull envelopes.

2 Evaluation of longitudinal strength
On oil tankers of 130 m in length and upwards and of over 10 years of age, the longitudinal strength of the ship's hull girder should be evaluated in compliance with the requirements of this annex on the basis of the thickness measured, renewed or reinforced, as appropriate, during the renewal survey of the Cargo Ship Safety Construction Certificate or Cargo Ship Safety Certificate (SC renewal survey).
The condition of the hull girder for longitudinal strength evaluation should be determined in accordance with the methods specified in appendix 3.

2.1 Calculation of transverse sectional areas of deck and bottom flanges of hull girder
2.1.1 The transverse sectional areas of deck flange (deck plating and deck longitudinals) and bottom flange (bottom shell plating and bottom longitudinals) of the ship’s hull girder should be calculated by using the thickness measured, renewed or reinforced, as appropriate, during the SC renewal survey.

2.1.2 If the diminution of sectional areas of either deck or bottom flange exceeds 10 % of their respective as-built area (i.e. original sectional area when the ship was built), either one of the following measures should be taken:
.1 to renew or reinforce the deck or bottom flanges so that the actual sectional area is not less than 90% of the as-built area; or
.2 to calculate the actual section moduli (Zact) of transverse section of the ship’s hull girder by applying the calculation method specified in appendix 1, by using the thickness measured, renewed or reinforced, as appropriate, during the SC renewal survey.

2.2 Requirements for transverse section modulus of hull girder

2.2.1 The actual section moduli of transverse section of the ship’s hull girder calculated in accordance with paragraph 2.1.2.2 should satisfy either of the following provisions, as applicable:
.1 for ships constructed on or after 1 July 2002, the actual section moduli (Zact) of the transverse section of the ship's hull girder calculated in accordance with the requirements of paragraph 2.1.2.2 should be not less than the diminution limits determined by the Administration, taking into account the recommendations adopted by the Organization*; or
.2 for ships constructed before 1 July 2002, the actual section moduli (Zact) of the transverse section of the ship's hull girder calculated in accordance with the requirements of paragraph 2.1.2.2 should meet the criteria for minimum section modulus for ships in service required by the Administration or recognized classification society, provided that in no case Zact should be less than the diminution limit of the minimum section modulus (Zmc) as specified in appendix 2.


* Refer to resolution MSC.108(73) on Recommendation on compliance with the requirements of paragraph 2.2.1.1 of annex 12 to Annex B to resolution A.744(18).
