Annual class surveys are to be carried out within 3 months on either side of the due

date. These are to be held concurrently with statutory annual or other relevant
statutory surveys, where practicable.
Annual surveys are normally visual examination to ascertain the general condition
of the craft or that relevant requirements are complied with. A more thorough
annual survey may be specified for particular structure, machinery installations or
equipment due to consequences of failure or age.


The efficient condition of the following is to be verified:
a) Complete overall examination of craft structure including all internal void spaces and
critical structure behind fire insulation as deemed necessary by the Surveyor.
b) Hatchways on freeboard and superstructure decks.
c) Weather decks.
d) Ventilation coamings and ventilation ducts for engine or boiler rooms with dampers.
e) Air pipes.
f) Windows, deadlights and side scuttles.
g) Watertight doors in crafts bow, sides and stern.
h) Scuppers, discharges and valves with hull attachments (so far as practicable).
i) Exposed casings and skylights.
j) Deckhouses and companionways.
k) Superstructure bulkheads and W.T. doors and penetrations.
l) Chutes and other openings.
m) Bilge level detection and alarm systems on crafts with SYJ notation.
n) Anchoring and mooring arrangement.

o) Guardrails, bulwark, gangways, lifelines, freeing ports and shutters.

p) Main and auxiliary steering arrangement, including their associated equipment and control
equipment and verification that log book entries have been made in accordance with statutory
requirements when applicable.
q) Machinery spaces, with particular attention being given to the propulsion system, and to
the existence of any fire and explosion hazards. Where applicable, emergency escape routes
to be checked.
r) Means of communication between the bridge and the machinery control position as well as
the bridge and the alternative steering position, if fitted.
s) The bilge pumping systems and bilge wells, including operations of extended spindles, self
closing drain cocks and level alarms, where fitted, are to be examined so far is practicable.
Satisfactory operation of the bilge pumps including any hand pumps, is to be tested.
t) Any pressure vessels including safety devices, foundations, controls, relieving gear,
associated piping systems, insulation and gauges are to be generally examined.
u) The electrical equipment and cabling forming the main and emergency installations are to
be generally examined under operating conditions so far as is practicable. The satisfactory
operation of the main and emergency sources of power and electrical services essential for
safety in an emergency is to be verified. Where the sources of power are automatically
controlled, they are to be tested in the automatic mode. Bonding straps for the control of
static electricity and earthing arrangements are to be examined where fitted.
v) Remote control on quick closing or stop of valves, pumps, fans, fire dampers.
