In line with the requirements of IMO MSC.1 Circ.1619, Circ. 1620, Circ. 1175 Rev.01 and the latest OCIMF Marine Equipment Guidelines (MEG4 – July 2018) all ships need to be equipped with a Mooring Systems Management Plan and a Line Management Plan. Scope of the manual is to assist operators to ensure that the mooring system is inspected, operated and maintained in accordance with the original design basis. The manual should contain information that it should be available to anyone onboard the ship. Manual is developed in line with OCIMF/IMO Guidelines and common marine practice. It is also applicable for Rightship Inspection and Assessment as it covers the requirements of Section 5 regarding mooring equipment and lines. Approval by the Administration or a Recognised Organisation (RO) on behalf of the Administration is NOT mandatory.
IMO mooring requirements from 01-01-2024 require each ship to have procedures for inspection, maintenance and monitoring mooring lines introducing new definitions for Ship Design MBL, LDBF etc.
IMO requires that all ships should have documented procedures for inspection, maintenance and monitoring mooring lines.
SQE Marine has developed more than for 1,000 plans in line with OCIMF MEG4 for Oil Tankers operated by more than 100 clients since 2018 with positive feedback through the vetting inspections that these ships have successfully passed so far. Furthermore we have already developed more than 500 plans for dry bulk ships (bulk carriers, General cargo, Containers and Ro-Pax).

- Part A – General ship particulars
