    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This guide covers information to develop and implement a marine vessel inspection process. It is intended to provide considerations for persons interested in planning, organizing, and implementing a structural survey plan for a marine vessel, especially during the design phase of the vessel. It is intended to be used in conjunction with any other required inspection or survey requirements but can form the basis for such planning in the absence of other such applicable requirements.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F25 on Ships and Marine Technology, this guide was withdrawn in October 2012 due to its limited use by industry.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This guide covers information to develop and implement a marine vessel inspection process. It is intended to provide considerations for persons interested in planning, organizing, and implementing a structural survey plan for a marine vessel, especially during the design phase of the vessel. It is intended to be used in conjunction with any other required inspection or survey requirements but can form the basis for such planning in the absence of other such applicable requirements.

    1.2 This guide provides owners, operators, shipyards, and designers with a plan for developing a detailed inspection process that covers all stages of the operating life of a marine vessel, including the design, construction, and in-service periods. This plan may be developed and used in concert with classification society and flag state surveys and inspections.

    1.3 This guide also provides the basis for development of a recommended corrective action plan for typical structural deficiencies or deviations, or both.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.5 All portions of this guide may not be applicable to all vessels or shipyards since many yard-specific standards to ensure contracted level of quality are in existence.
