ABS - Rules for Survey After Construction - Part 7
Pages count: 748
Description: In an effort to facilitate usage and better maintain survey after construction Rules, ABS has consolidated
twenty-two (22) ABS Rules and Guides into this “Rules for Survey after Construction” booklet for 2001.
These requirements apply to and supersede all survey after construction Rules required by the ABS Rules
and Guides listed in Chapter 1, Section 1, Subsection 1 “Application” (7-1-1/1) of these Rules. These
Rules do not apply to any other ABS Rules or Guide containing survey after construction requirements
unless a particular Rule or Guide references any of the survey requirements of the ABS Rules or Guides
listed in 7-1-1/1.
Chapters 1 through 8 contains survey Rules that have common requirements for different vessel types and
geographical service areas. Where survey requirements differ according to the vessel’s geographical
limitation in these Rules, the chapter has been sectioned into Unrestricted Service, Great Lakes Service,
and Rivers and Intracoastal Waterways Services.
Where survey requirements are common to different vessel types, each survey type will contain
requirements applicable to all vessels. When additional requirements are applicable to a specific vessel
type, or are in lieu of the common requirement, they will be listed after the requirements for all vessels.
The requirements for vessels in the Enhanced Survey Program (ESP) have been incorporated into each
Chapter 9 contains survey requirements to maintain a Class Notation for an additional system or service.
Chapters 10 through 12 contain unique survey Rules for Floating Drydocks, Underwater Vehicles and
Sailing Yachts not Receiving AMS Notation. The survey interval and survey requirements noted in these
chapters only apply to these vessel types.
The Appendix includes several ABS Guides relating to survey after construction and also contains
planning, reporting and certification of thickness measurement firms required by the Enhanced Survey
In order to further explain the new formatting contained in these Rules, sample vessels and their applicable
survey requirements are illustrated in the table on the following page.
