The Chinese Classification Society's Guidelines for Construction Monitoring of Hull Structures are intended to be applied in addition to the applicable requirements for survey of the critical locations within the ship's structure, for the purpose of controls on fit-up, alignment, groove preparation and workmanship to such locations of the relevant hull structures, in order to ensure that those critical locations are being built to both approved construction procedures and to the acceptable quality standards. The CMP - Construction Monitoring Plan - is used for all parties involved in construction and concerned to focus the attention of knowledge of the ship hull critical locations during her service life. These Guidelines have been divided in four chapters covering general information, monitoring prior to/during/after construction, supplemented with three Annexes addressing critical locations of hull structures, construction monitoring standard for hull structures, and sample construction monitoring plan. These Guidelines are applicable to all newly constructed oil tankers, bulk carriers and container vessels having a length of 150 or more meters. Throughout the whole service life of the ship, the owners will be held responsible for conducting regular inspections and maintaining critical locations determined before, as per approved construction monitoring plan.
