Part A

CODE ON THE ENHANCED PROGRAMME OF INSPECTIONS DURING SURVEYS OF BULK CARRIERS HAVING SINGLE-SIDE SKIN CONSTRUCTION

1 Paragraph 1.5 is replaced with the following:

  • "1.5 Thickness measurements and close-up surveys

  • In any kind of survey, i.e. renewal, intermediate, annual or other surveys having the scope of the foregoing ones, for structures in areas where close-up surveys are required, thickness measurements, when required by annex 2, should be carried out simultaneously with close-up surveys."

2 Paragraph 2.4.4 is replaced with the following:

  • "2.4.4 Close up survey and thickness measurementfootnote of the hatch cover and coaming plating and stiffeners should be carried out as given in annexes 1 and 2.

ANNEX 1

REQUIREMENTS FOR CLOSE-UP SURVEY AT RENEWAL SURVEYS

3 Note (D) is replaced with the following:

  • "(D) Cargo hold hatch covers and coamings. For cargo hold hatch covers of approved design which structurally have no access to the internals, close-up survey/thickness measurement shall be done of accessible parts of hatch covers' structures."

Part B

CODE ON THE ENHANCED PROGRAMME OF INSPECTIONS DURING SURVEYS OF BULK CARRIERS HAVING DOUBLE-SIDE SKIN CONSTRUCTION

4 Paragraph 1.5 is replaced with the following:

  • "1.5 Thickness measurements and close-up surveys

  • In any kind of survey, i.e. renewal, intermediate, annual or other surveys having the scope of the foregoing ones, for structures in areas where close-up surveys are required, thickness measurements, when required by annex 2, should be carried out simultaneously with close-up surveys."

5 Paragraph 2.4.4 is replaced with the following:
