The present guidance booklet was prepared by the professionals of the Lloyds Register of Shipping, i.e. one of the most respected and world recognized classification societies, and officially released in order to serve as the useful supplementary tool for the surveyors of LR performing surveys of marine anchor chains and associated fittings for their compliance with all applicable technical requirements stated in the Rules. The original intention of the people who developed subject document was to provide the surveyors with the proper and comprehensive guidelines on how to interpret the Rules in a correct way, and be able to duly check the chains during their manufacture. In the meantime, it should be taken into consideration that the present guidebook shall not be treated as the integral part of the classification Rules that are regularly issued by LR - what it means is that the Rues shall be addressed where necessary. The material of this Guide mainly bases on the requirements that have been incorporated into the LR Rues applicable to the Materials. Where required, this document uses numerous supplementary pictorial examples for illustration of the common imperfections and defects of the chain. Note, however, that all those images are included for guidance purposes only while the decision is to be made solely on the basis of the Rule requirements.
