WHEN DO NEW BP REQUIREMENTS FOR DRY-DOCKING APPLY?

 Questions have been raised with respect to the application of the new BP requirement that both Special Survey (SS) and Intermediate Survey (IS) should include dry-docking of the ship. This requirement will come into force on 1 January 2001 and ships which have an IS before that date will not be required to have been in the dry-dock before the due date. This means that a ship dry-docking in year 2000 would have to comply with the BP request by 2002/2003.
