Period: from (19.10.2008) to (28.03.2009)
Job title: flag state control maritime inspector.
•Verify whether the flagged vessels comply with applicable international conventions on safety, pollution prevention and crew living and working conditions. Where vessels are found to be not in substantial compliance, the flag state control maritime inspectors system imposes actions to ensure they are brought into compliance.
•When a ship is selected for inspection reviews all available information about the ship.
information (such as ship type, tonnage, age, outstanding deficiencies, recent spill or other operational failures) may be extracted from local information provided by agents, port authorities, classification societies, own historical file of the vessel.
•The following checked when approaching the vessel:
- Cargo, and around the vessel.
- The general condition of the facility (or other Vessel) adjacent to the vessel being boarded.
- The general condition of the hull.
- The location of the vessel's load line (if the Vessel is trim and the load line mark is submerged).
- The vessel's draft marks.
- Suitability of the moorings and the means of access.
- Advise the master that the inspection, consisting of a document check and a general examination of the overall condition of the ship, may be extended if clear grounds are established to question the validity of the vessel's certificates. it is advisable to make adequate notes and comments during all parts of the inspection so that all discrepancies noted and actions taken can be confirmed - if necessary - to reviewing officials or ship's personnel.
An inspection checks the documentation and the overall conditions of the ship and of the crew.
As a minimum the following items should be part of an initial inspection:
1.Certificates licenses and documents:
(Safe manning, international convention on Standards of training certification and watch keeping for seafarers, 1978/1995 (STCW), ISM code, ISPS code & ship certificates).
Inspection is a general tour of the ship in order to judge its overall condition. It should take in an account any observation made on approaching the ship and the following:
Gain an impression of the maintenance and the general state of the deck and side shell of the vessel.
The condition of items as ladder ways, guardrails, piping, hatch covers, watertight and watertight closures, and deck plating should be observed.
When visible, the internal structural members visible from deck in open cargo bays or upper wing tanks should be observed. Look for improper temporary repairs, soft patches, recent welding or other hot work, and seepage from fuel, cargo or ballast tanks and side shell plating.
Look closely to closing appliances, the means of freeing water from the deck, and the arrangements for the protection of the crew. Items such as defective hatch closing arrangements, multiple missing dogs, corroded vents and wasted comings may warrant further examination.
b) Machinery spaces:
Form an impression of the standard of maintenance.
Frayed or disconnected wires, disconnected or inoperative reach rods, quick closing valves or machinery trip mechanisms, missing valve hand wheels, evidence of chronic steam, water and oil leaks, dirty tank tops and bilges, or extensive corrosion of machinery foundations are indicative of poor maintenance.
c) Life-saving equipment:
Looking for obvious defects such as holed lifeboats or missing equipment. Looking for signs of disuse of, or obstructions to, the boat launching equipment that may include paint accumulation, seizing of pivot points, absence of greasing, condition of blocks and falls, and improper lashing or stowing of deck cargo that interfere with its use.
d) Fire safety equipment:
The poor condition of fire mains and hydrants and the possible absence of fire hoses and extinguishers in machinery or accommodation spaces may warrant a closer examination of the fire safety equipment.
Looking for evidence of a higher than normal fire risk such as oily bilges, oil soaked pipe lagging and oily rags or other rubbish in the machinery space.
e) Navigation safety:
Ask if all the equipment was working properly during the last voyage. Ask to see the vessel's logs for required entries, charts and publications.
f) Living and working conditions:
Form a general impression of the overall standards maintained. Focus on:
- Any documents and records.
- The condition of the food and the potable water supply.
- Arrangement and cleanliness of food stores galleys, pantries, refrigerated chambers and mess-rooms.
- Toilet and shower accommodation.
- The operation and physical maintenance of ventilation, heating, lighting and water.
g) Radio operation:
Check the condition of the aerial installation. Ask to see a test of the emergency power source and the radio equipment.
h) Operational requirements:
The following on board operational procedures may be checked:
•Muster list: crewmembers familiarity with their duties as indicated in the muster list.
•Communication: ability of key crewmembers to communicate with each other and with the passengers as appropriate, in such a way that the safe operation of the vessel is not impaired, especially in emergency situations.

•Damage control documents and sopep: familiarity of appropriate crew members with their duties and the proper use of the ship's installations and equipment for damage control and pollution control. Assess whether the officers are aware of the actions to be taken in various damage conditions.
•Fire control plan: familiarity of the crew with the information given in the fire control plan or booklet.
•Bridge operation: familiarity of the officers in charge of a navigational watch with bridge control and navigational equipment, changing the steering mode from automatic to manual and vice versa and the ship's maneuvering characteristics.

- Emergency and stand-by sources of electrical power;
- Auxiliary steering gear;
- Bilge and fire pumps; and
- Any other equipment essential in emergency situations.

- The use of the emergency and fully independent sources of electrical power of radio installations;
- The maintenance procedures for batteries;
- The emergency stops;
- Fire detection system and alarm system;
