2011 ESP CODE — 2013 EDITION
|D O W N L O A D|
The present 2011 ESP Code was originally adopted in 2011 by Res. A.1049(2). It was later made mandatory through the amendments to Reg. XI-1/2 of SOLAS convention. Subject regulation requires oil tankers and bulk carriers to be subject to the enhanced inspection programme as per 2011 ESP Code.
The main purpose of the CAS, standing for the Condition Assessment Scheme, coming under the Annex I to the MARPOL convention is to verify that the structural condition of single hull oil tankers is acceptable at delivery of the vessel and continues to be acceptable - this is verified through periodical surveys.
The content of this Code consists of two annexes. The first Annex A covers the single-skin and double skin bulk carriers, while the Annex B is dealing with the double-hull oil tankers and other oil tankers. The Code is closely aligned with the content of IACS UR Z10 addressing hull surveys to make sure that it is kept user friendly and simple.
The publication is definitely a must have on board any bulk carrier and oil tanker and will also be interesting for the people working in a maritime industry and willing to be knowledgeable about all requirements that may be applied to the subject vessels.
