2.1.1 The enhanced survey may be commenced at
the fourth annual survey and be progressed during the succeeding year
with a view to completion by the fifth anniversary date.
2.1.2 As part of the preparation for the enhanced
survey, the survey programme should be dealt with, in advance of the
enhanced survey. The thickness measurement should not be held before
the fourth annual survey.
2.1.3 The survey should include, in addition to
the requirements of the annual survey, examination, tests and checks
of sufficient extent to ensure that the hull and related piping is
in a satisfactory condition and is fit for its intended purpose for
the new period of validity of the Cargo Ship Safety Construction Certificate,
subject to proper maintenance and operation and to renewal surveys
being carried out.
2.1.4 All cargo holds, ballast tanks, pipe tunnels,
cofferdams and void spaces bounding cargo holds, decks and outer hull
should be examined, and this examination should be supplemented by
thickness measurement and testing as deemed necessary, to ensure that
the structural integrity remains effective. The examination should
be sufficient to discover substantial corrosion, significant deformation,
fractures, damages or other structural deterioration.
2.1.5 All piping systems within the above spaces
should be examined and operationally tested under working conditions
to ensure that the condition remains satisfactory.
2.1.6 The survey extent of combined ballast/cargo
holds should be evaluated based on the records of ballast history
and extent of the corrosion prevention system provided.
2.1.7 The survey extent of ballast tanks converted
to void spaces should be specially considered in relation to the requirements
for ballast tanks.
