Refers to: Ship Owners / Managers/ Operators of Liberian flagged vessels, PHRS Surveyors / Representatives
Action Date: Immediate
This Notice provides a reproducible copy of this Operational/Safety Checklist in the RLM-300 to facilitate the inspection of safety equipment as required by SOLAS 1974, as amended, Chapter II, Regulations 14.2 to 14.4, Chapter III, Regulations 20.6 and 20.7 and other parts of SOLAS, MARPOL and other International Conventions, as applicable. The Administration strongly recommends the use of this format or a company sponsored planned maintenance system.
This Notice applies to Masters as it is their responsibility to ensure that all safety equipment, including lifesaving and firefighting appliances, is always in good condition and available for immediate use. Masters should also be aware that Port State Control inspections are focusing greater attention to the condition of lifesaving and firefighting appliances, based on the fact that these areas continue to generate the greatest number of deficiencies on the average for all vessels inspected by Port State Authorities.
