ASTM F 1754—97 R04 — STANDARD GUIDE FOR MARINE VESSEL STRUCTURAL INSPECTION CONSIDERATIONS
|D O W N L O A D|
The present guide developed by ASTM was released to cover the technical information necessary for the development/implementation of the inspection process as applicable to marine ships. The publication will provide required considerations for the people who are interested in making proper structural survey plans for marine ships, and are dealing with planning as well as organizing of the surveys, especially at the design phase of the shipbuilding process. This book may easily be used together with any other regulatory document; however, it may also serve as the technical basis for planning these surveys and their implementation of the survey plans in case no other applicable requirements are available.
The standard provides all interested parties, i.e. vessel owners, construction yards, operators and designers with a plan to develop the inspection process covering all phases of the operational life of the ship - such plan may be developed and implemented in concept with Class of Flag State inspections. In addition to that, the guide will be helpful when used as the basis for the development of the CAP (corrective action plan) for typical deviations and/of deficiencies related to the ship's structure. Note that the safety aspects have not been addressed in the document and remain the responsibility of the involved parties.
