Maintenance of safety equipment

DNV GL AS
SECTION 1 GENERAL

Section 1
1 Introduction
The requirements for inspection and maintenance of safety equipment can be found in a large number of
statutory instruments. Establishing an easy, user-friendly and practical overview of such requirements has
proven to be challenging.
DNV GL intends to address this challenge and provides a compact and practical tool in the format of a list of
such requirements for ship owners and operators (“Users”) at the time of the issuance of the document. This
list includes also requirements and recommendations by DNV GL and IACS.
This document does not address additional or more stringent requirements from manufacturers and flag
administrations. Users must take these requirements into account.
DNV GL reserves the right to amend the content of the document at any time.

2 Procedure
Users may use this document to establish or validate inspection and maintenance routines in their Planned
Maintenance Systems. When establishing the maintenance and inspection procedures it should be noted that
certain jobs may be performed by competent crew members, while others shall be performed by specially
trained persons. It should also be noted that certain jobs needs to be scheduled to coincide with a relevant
Safety Equipment Class survey. Which parts of the inspections and maintenance shall be completed by
competent crew members or specially trained persons or attended by surveyor, are indicated in the list.

3 Application
The document does not replace the original equipment manufacturer’s instructions and maintenance
requirements.
It is not meant to replace or overrule any existing rules, regulations, statutory requirements or technical
standards.
Finally, it is not meant to replace Users’ individual responsibility to know the applicable requirements and
ensure compliance at all points in time.

4 Precautions
As a general rule, all inspections shall be carried out in accordance with the system manufacturer’s
instructions and safety precautions. If equipment is undergoing maintenance or testing, then suitable
arrangements shall be made to ensure safety is not diminished through the provision of alternate equipment
or other measures.

5 Records
Records of the inspections shall be carried on board of the ship, or be accessible in digital format on board.
In cases where the inspections and maintenance are carried out by specially trained persons other than the
ship’s crew, inspection reports shall be provided upon the completion of the inspections. Some inspections
required by SOLAS shall be entered in the logbook.
