Prioritised ship types for Condition Survey for entered ships
The Association conducts condition surveys by third-party organisations for ships that have reached a certain age. From the standpoint of P&I insurers, we aim to prevent all accidents, large and small, by detecting risk factors that lead to insurance accidents at an early stage and maintaining the seaworthiness/cargo worthiness of the ships above a certain level.
Ships subject to the condition survey are as described on our website, but as a present preventative measures in a situation where it is difficult to inspect a ship in the COVID-19 pandemic, in consideration of the risk of claimoccurring, we will focus on the following ship types in particular among the target ships. The person in charge of the Association will contact each member about the ships to be surveyed. Thank you for your cooperation.
