Description: MEG4 stresses that it is the responsibility of the operator to ensure the proper development and implementation
of the LMP. As with the Mooring System Management Plan Register (MSMPR), it is a live document and can
be held either in hard or soft version. It should, however, be integrated into the ship’s document control
system and be subject to change management controls to ensure a complete history. The LMP should be easily
accessible for internal and external compliance verification, ship personnel training and communication with
manufacturers by those who need to use it.
Additional info: The LMP contains the ship operator’s requirements for the management of mooring line maintenance, inspection
and retirement during the operational phase of the mooring line lifecycle. The LMP can be a standalone tool
or it may be integrated into existing safety or maintenance management systems. It can be available as hard
or electronic copy, or both. The LMP should be capable of being updated and should be accessible for internal
and external compliance verification, ship personnel training and communication with manufacturers. LMP
information should be stored in a location that is easy for all users to access.


Contained within section 5.4.2 of Mooring Equipment Guidelines (MEG4) is a description of the Line
Management Plan (LMP). The LMP should contain all the requirements for how the lines are maintained,
inspected and retired and each of these parts should be detailed in the plan. For example, in the maintenance
section it should detail the installation, storage, repair, maintenance and wear and tear, while at every stage
referencing any manufacturer’s guidance. Similarly, the inspection section should detail how and when the
inspection should be undertaken.
Typical components include:
• Records of mooring hours.
• Line inspection records and plans.
• Manufacturer and operator retirement criteria.
• Test/inspection reports.
• Manufacturer’s recommendations following tests or inspections.
