Unit 19. Classifications, Statutory Surveys & Inspections


The aim of this specialist module “Classification and Statutory Surveys” is to provide the student with an insight into the work carried out by classification societies, what they are, their regulation and some detail as to the types of surveys carried out.

We will see that there are many classification societies operating throughout the world but that they have common standards. Their operation, interpretation and professionalism does not form part of this study, nor does the economic and financial influences involved in choosing one society in preference to another.

The majority of the information in this module is related to the classification societies’ rules and regulations for the building and continued operation of merchant ships, but we will also introduce aspects to show areas where the classification societies operate rules for the construction and operation of yachts, offshore platforms, special service craft (including military vessels) and their work in the marine related industries.
