Description: We understand these are difficult times for both ship operators and crews. The COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic is affecting how we all work.
Therefore, we are finding new ways to assist Members in conducting their operations safely and efficiently during times where normal operations might not be possible.
One of these areas is steel pre-load surveys. North’s policy is to arrange and cover the costs of these precautionary surveys for semi-finished and finished steel cargoes. However, with restrictions in place in many ports across the globe, access to vessels and port facilities could be restricted and surveyor appointments hampered.
In such circumstances, we have provided the following to assist you in preparing for loading steel cargoes and in evidencing that due diligence was exercised in making the vessel seaworthy.


Initial Actions
If a surveyor appointment is not possible or no access to the port is allowed
The Master’s responsibility
Annex 1: Proving Seaworthiness
Annex 2: Assessing the pre-shipment order and condition of the cargo
Annex 3: Steel pre-load survey form example
