13    Maintenance of condition after survey

(SOLAS I/6 (c) & I/11)

13.1  Maintenance of condition

13.1.1       The condition of the ship and its equipment must be maintained to conform with the Navigation Act, Marine Orders and Regulation 11 of Chapter I of SOLAS to ensure that the ship in all respects remains fit to proceed to sea without danger to the ship or persons on board.

13.1.2       When a surveyor determines that the condition of a ship or any of its equipment does not comply with the Navigation Act, Marine Orders or Regulation 11 of Chapter I of SOLAS such that the ship is not fit to proceed to sea without danger to the ship or persons on board, the surveyor must inform the owner, master or agent of the ship of the deficiency.

Note   Section 210 of the Navigation Act provides for the detention of a ship that is not seaworthy. In the case of an Australian ship, AMSA may cancel the certificates of a ship that does not comply with the Navigation Act, Marine Orders and Regulation 11 of Chapter I of SOLAS. The Manager, Ship Inspections, has been authorised by AMSA to exercise this power on its behalf.

13.2  Reports under section 268 of the Navigation Act

13.2.1B    A master of a ship must send to the General Manager:

(a)   an Incident Alert form no later than 4 hours after the incident occurred; and

(b)   an Incident Report form no later than 72 hours after the incident occurred.

13.2.2       If a report has been made under section 268 of the Navigation Act, the Manager, Ship Inspections, must initiate such investigations as are needed to determine if a survey of the ship is necessary.

Note   A report under section 268 of the Navigation Act is to be made to the General Manager through Rescue Coordination Centre (RCC) Australia.  If a master is unable to access the appropriate AMSA Form, AMSA will accept another document if that document sets out the information mentioned in the appropriate AMSA Form.

AMSA Forms 18 and 19 are also available from AMSA’s website: www.amsa.gov.au

If the ship is in a port outside Australia, the master must, in addition to reporting the incident to the General Manager, report the incident to the appropriate authority of the country in which the port is situated.

If one or more of the certificates relating to a ship in respect of which a report has been made under section 268 of the Navigation Act were issued by a survey authority, a report in similar terms must also be made to that survey authority.

14.2  Commencement of renewal period

                 If an existing certificate is being renewed, the period in column 3 of Table 1 commences:

(a)   if the renewal survey is completed on, or within three months before, the expiry date of the existing certificate from the expiry date of the existing certificate; or

(b)   if the renewal survey is completed after the expiry date of the existing certificate from the expiry date of the existing certificate; or

(c)   if the renewal survey is completed more than three months before the expiry date of the existing certificate from the date of completion of the renewal survey.

14.3  Extension of validity

14.3.1       If a certificate is issued for a period of less than the maximum period specified in Table 1, the  Manager, Ship Inspections, may extend the validity of the certificate beyond the expiry date to the maximum period, provided that the surveys referred to in 8, 9 and 10 applicable when a certificate is issued for a period exceeding one year are carried out as appropriate.

14.3.2       If a renewal survey has been completed and a new certificate cannot be issued or placed on board the ship before the expiry date of the existing cer­tificate, the Manager, Ship Inspections, or survey authority, as appropriate, must endorse the existing certificate and such a certificate is to be accepted as valid for a further period which must not exceed 5 months from the expiry date.

14.3.3       If an Australian ship (other than a fishing vessel) at the time when a certificate expires is not in a port in which it is to be surveyed, the Manager, Ship Inspections, or a consul or other diplomatic representative of Australia may extend the period of validity of the certificate but this extension is to be granted only for the purpose of allowing the ship to complete its voyage to the port in which it is to be surveyed, and then only in cases where it appears proper and reasonable to do so. No certificate is to be extended for a period longer than three months, and a ship to which an extension is granted must not, on its arrival in the port in which it is to be surveyed, be entitled by virtue of such extension to leave that port without having a new certificate.  When the renewal survey is completed, the period in column 3 of Table 1 commences from the expiry date of the existing certificate before the extension was granted.

14.3.4       A certificate that has been issued to a fishing vessel, or a ship (other than a fishing vessel) engaged on short voyages, and that has not been extended under 14.3.1, 14.3.3 or 14.3.5 may be extended by the Manager, Ship Inspections, or a consul or other diplomatic representative of Australia for a period of grace of up to one month from the date of expiry stated on it. When the renewal survey is completed, the period in column 3 of Table 1 commences from the expiry date of the existing certificate before the extension was granted.

14.3.5       If an Australian-registered fishing vessel is not in an Australian port when its certificate expires or ceases, the Manager, Ship Inspections, or a consul or other diplomatic representative of Australia may extend the period of validity of the certificate but this extension is to be granted only for the purpose of allowing the vessel to complete its voyage to a port in Australia or to the port in which it is to be surveyed, and then only in cases where it appears proper and reasonable to do so.  No certificate is to be extended for a period longer than three months, and a vessel to which such extension is granted must not, on its first arrival in an Australian port or the port in which it is to be surveyed, be entitled by virtue of such extension to leave such port without having obtained a new certificate.

14.3.6       In special circumstances, as determined by the Manager, Ship Inspections, a new certificate need not be dated from the date of expiry of the existing certificate as required by 14.2 (b), 14.3.3 or 14.3.4.  In these special circumstances the period in column 3 of Table 1 commences from the date of completion of the renewal survey.

Note   ‘Special circumstances’ might include a situation where a ship is laid up at the time the survey is due and remains laid up for a period of 6 months or more.

14.4  Surveys completed before certificate expiry

                 If an annual, intermediate or periodical survey is completed before the period specified in this Part, then:

(a)   the anniversary date shown on the relevant certificate is to be amended by endorsement to a date which must not be more than three months later than the date on which the survey was completed;

(b)   the subsequent annual, intermediate or periodical survey required by this Part must be completed at the intervals prescribed by this Part using the new anniversary date;

(c)   the expiry date may remain unchanged provided one or more annual, intermediate or periodical surveys, as appropriate, are carried out so that the maximum intervals between the surveys specified in this Part are not exceeded.

14.5  Certificate ceasing to be valid

                 A certificate ceases to be valid in any of the following cases:

(a)   if the relevant surveys and inspections are not completed within the periods specified in this Part;

(b)   if the certificate is not endorsed in accordance with this Part;

(c)   upon transfer of the ship to the Australian flag.

Note   A new certificate will not be issued until AMSA or a survey authority, as appropriate, is fully satisfied that the ship is in compliance with the requirements of the Navigation Act and Marine Orders.

14.6  Issue, endorsement etc of certificates

                 Except where specifically provided for in the Navigation Act or a Part of Marine Orders, a certificate is to be issued, endorsed, extended or otherwise dealt with by a surveyor.
