Cirular 9/95: Ship Inspection - Report to the Members

  • Date: 01/08/1995


Dear Sirs,


We are pleased to attach the latest report on the Association's Ship Inspection programme. This report explains in detail the nature of the ship inspection process, and records the overall picture presented from an analysis of the data in the inspectors' reports. It also provides an analysis of the findings from the condition survey programme dating back to 1990. By publishing the data in this booklet, it is hoped that all Members will be assisted in focusing attention in areas commonly found to be weak. It is also hoped the publication will be seen as a contribution to the industry's data on ship quality arising from other inspection and survey programmes, and contribute to the knowledge and understanding of those sectors of the wider industry, including flag states, classification societies, ship builders and charterers, where a shared commitment to quality will further improve safety.

Yours faithfully,
