ClassNK informed that it has released the latest version of Good Maintenance Onboard Ships, designed to be used by shipowners and crews to ensure vessels are safe, well-maintained and comply with regulations.

The latest edition includes clear explanations, photo examples as well as guidance on the latest updates in the industry, to further improve the quality and efficiency of maintenance onboard ships.

Incorporating feedback from Port State Control (PSC) inspections, and comments from shipowners and mariners, it includes checklists for Routine Maintenance, PSC Inspections, Safety Management Systems, Ship Security Management Systems, as well as photos of the most common deficiencies. 

It now also includes a checklist for the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 (MLC, 2006).

ClassNK’s Director of Survey Operations Division Yoshinori Kozeki said: “This easy-to-use checklist is a result of our ongoing commitment to improve the safety of life and property at sea, and the prevention of pollution of the marine environment…We hope that crews will utilize this to help create a safer work environment, decrease the number of PSC detainments and prevent maintenance related problems before they occur.”

  1. I might’ve missed this in earlier versions of the document, but can ClassNK (and maybe others) please use the phrase ‘liquefied gas carriers’ instead of the incorrect ‘liquid gas carriers’?

    It’s a mix of two issues, language and understanding of physics. When gas is ‘liquefied’ using external energy, it turns into a ‘liquefied gas’. There is nothing such as ‘liquid gas’. Liquid is liquid and gas is gas.
