After an initial survey before the ship is put in service, which shall include a complete inspection of its structure and equipment in so far as the ship is covered by Convention. The survey shall be such as to ensure that the arrangements, materials and scantlings fully comply with the requirements of the the International Convention on Load Lines.

How is it maintained?

By a periodical survey not exceed five years, to ensure that the structure, equipment, arrangements, materials and scantlings fully comply with the requirements of the Convention.

And an  inspection within three months either way of each annual anniversary date of the certificate, to ensure that alterations have not been made to the hull or superstructures which would affect the calculations determining the position of the load line.

What is looked during the annual inspection?

The effective condition of fittings and appliances for:

  • Protection of openings
  • Guard rails
  • Freeing ports
  • Means of access to crew’s quarters

What is contained on the certificate?

  • Name of ship

    • Winter North Atlantic
    • Winter
    • Summmer
    • Tropical

What other document is found with the load line certificate?

The record of particulars relating to conditions of assignment.

What information is contained within the records of particulars?

Tables with details of the following (Where they apply to superstructures, exposed machinery casings and deckhouses protecting openings in freeboard and superstructure decks):

  • Doors
  • Hatchways
  • Machinery space openings
  • Ventilators
  • Air pipes
  • Cargo ports ans similar openings
  • Scuppers, inlets discharges
  • Side scuttles
  • Freeing ports
  • Protection of the crew
  • Timber deck cargo fittings
  • Other special features

Loadlines

How is the freeboard determined?

The treaty contains tables based on the length of the ship and type. These tables give the basic freeboard, which is then adjusted for several factors freeboard to give the summer freeboard. The other seasonal  freeboards are calculated based on the summer value.

Where to get information on ship certification

Navsregs>Ship Certification>Certification Information

Here starts a series of posts exploring ship certification; an important topic for anyone studying for certificates of competency,  especially at Mates, Masters, seconds or chiefs levels. Starting at the beginning I have put together some hints on where to find what needs to be carried.

IMO information

If you have access to SOLAS, its Annex 2 is a good place to start to determine what ship certification to hold. It contains a list of the certificates required to be carried on each type of ship,NAVSREGSOLASCover and also gives a useful reference to the related conventions.

This annex is also available as an IMO circular FAL.2/Circ.127, MEPC.1/Circ.817, MSC.1/Circ.1462, which can be downloaded from their website.

Flag state informationNavregsCertTableMCA

The UK produces some of the best additional guidance on certification and here are some pointers of where to look.

The UK MCA  publishes information within their ‘Instructions to surveyors Survey and certification policy’  (MSIS 23). Towards the back of this document are some handy tables of certificates. This is available online from the  UK government website

 

 

NavsregsCerGOVheadingRemaining on the UK GOV.UK website there is a
useful page ‘Vessel classification and certification’.

This page starts with an outline of the main certification requirements.

 

 

To dig into the legal deNavsregsCertSItails for UK flagged ship’s, the statutory instrument is  No 1210 The Merchant Shipping (Survey and Certification) Regulations 1995. This is available on line.

 

In the next post I will extract the information in these suggested documents to produce a crib that will answer the question “what certification must my ship carry?”

Hoegh Osaka – A handy revision summary for mariners based the MAIB safety flyer

For those about to hOEGHsit deck officer  examinations, or for those serving on Ro-Ros the topic of Ro-Ro stability is definitely one to have a good knowledge of. The UK MAIB have published a safety flyer  on the Hoegh Osaka grounding that is well worth a read.

 

Click here for the flyer from the MAIB.

A really hand revision list of the Safety Lessons from the report

 Assessing a ship has adequate stability for its intended voyage on completion of cargo operations and before it sails must not be neglected.

Sufficient time must be made before departure for an accurate stability calculation to be completed.

 A loading computer’s output can only be as accurate as the information entered into it.

 The master has ultimate responsibility for the safety of his/her ship.  This responsibility cannot be delegated to shore-based managers or charterers’ representatives.

A new MGN 552 on RoRo cargoes- a really handy summary

The UK M Notice MGN 552 (M) has been issued by the MCA on the safe Stowage and Securing of Specialised Vehicles. It is a useful source of advise for any seafarer involved in loading Ro Ro Cargoes. This post contains a summary of that notice for those revising for examinations. If you are involved in Ro Ro operations then follow the link to read the full notice.

image

The purpose of the Marine Guidance Note is to draw to the attention of industry, the potential hazards when carrying Specialised Vehicles.

Click here for the the Mnotice

Summary

Ships should ensure that cargo is stowed and secured in accordance with the approved Cargo securing manual  before the ship leaves a berth.

During the voyage, lashings should be inspected at intervals appropriate to the length of voyage and weather conditions expected to ensure that vehicles remain safely secured.

Lashings should not be released for unloading before the ship is secured at the berth, without the Master’s express permission.

Cargo should be so distributed that the ship has a metacentric height in excess of the required minimum and, whenever practicable, within an acceptable upper limit to minimise the forces acting on the cargo keeping in mind that large metacentric height could cause the ship to roll violently in adverse sea conditions.

Sudden change of course and or speed may create adverse forces acting on the ship and the cargo. This is especially relevant for vessels fitted with high lift rudders, where moderate to high rudder angles may result in high forces being generated.

The crew should be familiar with the requirements contained within the approved CSM.

Ships’ officers and managers should carry out checks on lashings during audits and inspections to ensure that bad practices are not taking place, especially where operations are rapid and very repetitive.

The condition of lashing systems should be monitored closely.

There should be an effective maintenance programme for all the portable and fixed securing devices. Web lashings are to be marked and limited to a maximum working
life.
