Den Norske Veritas (DNV) issues Master's check list

Den Norske Veritas (DNV) has issued a check list for Masters with a view to:


- improving safety, reducing losses and breakdowns;

- enhancing on board maintenance;

- aiding compliance with applicable safety, security, and pollution prevention requirements;

- avoiding off-hire, port state detention and targeting.


This list includes the most common and critical deficiencies, based on recent statistics and experience, requiring frequent maintenance onboard. It is therefore neither a comprehensive list that includes all possible deficiencies nor a substitute for the operator’s own maintenance scheme. In particular, hull structure and machinery are not covered in detail.
