ClassNK has released the latest version of its ‘Good Maintenance Onboard Ships’ guide.

The publication contains the most up-to-date checklists for routine maintenance, PSC inspections, safety management systems and ship security management systems, as well as photos of the most common deficiencies.

Yoshinori Kozeki, director of the survey operations division, said: “The latest edition of Good Maintenance Onboard Ships includes clear explanations, photo examples as well as guidance on the latest updates in the industry.

“We hope that crews will utilize this to help create a safer work environment, decrease the number of PSC detainments and prevent maintenance related problems before they occur.”

The document is designed to be used by shipmasters, crew, shipowners, and other key personnel to ensure vessels are safe, well-maintained and comply with regulations.

The latest edition also includes a checklist for the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006.

To further improve the quality and efficiency of the publication, ClassNK has incorporated its knowledge and experience gained through surveys and audits, feedback from Port State Control (PSC) inspections and comments from shipowners and mariners.
