Reflect the results of the inspection. 15. If the opinion is positive, the inspection shall be issued by the operator to the head of the inspection of the company's compliance with the signed certificate. To ensure the monitoring of the economic operators after the issue of the licence, the Inspectorate carries out annual inspections of the company. After the annual inspection certificate shall carry the mark of inspection signed by the Inspector. Without the annual approval certificate is not valid. 16. Inspection cancelled certificate of conformity if the merchant transaction and produced output of discrepancy in the requirements of this regulation. 17. decisions related to the company's certificate of compliance or this provision provided for in paragraph 20 of the issue or revocation of a licence, can challenge the maritime authorities of the administrative procedure law in the month following its adoption. Maritime Administration decision may appeal to the Court. 3. Ship inspections 3.1. initial viewing 18. Initial inspection shall be made before the registration of the ship register of Latvia. They are made part of the ship and the view details, test, test and measurement, as well as verify the ship's documentation to become familiar with the ship and get the information you need about its design, komplektējum and technical compliance with the provisions of the State. The owner of the ship and the crew provides all the information necessary for the performance of the inspection. 19. If the previous operation of the vessel under the supervision of the recognised organisation and the existing Board documents, may be taken into account in the opinion of the recognised organisations and reduced the amount of the initial inspection, but it may not be less than the amount of the annual inspections. The following can be saved to the recognised organisation's predetermined time limits examinations and other conditions. According to the results of the initial survey ship detects the shipping area and conditions allowed shipping. 20. If inspection results are positive, the vessel shall be issued by the head of that inspection or its authorized person's certificate of the vessel confirmed: 20.1. shipping capacity certificate (annex 2);

If inspection results are positive, the head of inspection shall be issued to the ship or its authorized persons approved these rules referred to in paragraph 20 of the licence. 26. the Licence shall be issued for a period of not more than five years. Certificate is valid if it each year after inspection by inspectors of carrying out the signature. 27. If the inspection found that the vessel is wholly or partially not conform to safe navigation conditions, shipping capacity certificate either does not issue, or a ship down the operating restrictions, which records the shipping capacity of the certificate. 3.3. Annual Inspection annual inspection carried out 28 every year to make sure that the design and technical komplektējum State is saved by compliance with safe navigation conditions. 29. The owner of the ship shall produce the annual ship inspection every year six month period, which begins three months before the sailing capabilities of certificate expiration date and ends three months after that date. During the Preview time, ensure that the inspections carried out since the previous inspection is not the constructive changes are not reconciled with the above requirements of the inspection that is carried out in a timely rescue and fire-fighting equipment required. 30. If the results of an annual survey results are positive, the term of validity of the certificate is extended for one year. 3.4. the Starpapskat dock Starpapskat dock on 31 carries for the period between inspections dock routine inspections within the verify the ship's underwater parts conformity with safe navigation conditions. Starpapskat deadline is determined between the second and third annual reviews, inspections of the ship to dock in between would be no more than 36 months. 32. If the spacing of the stern tube and the Steering box is permissible within the limits of the rules may allow starpapskat time does not show the stern tube and steering, dismantled on the basis of a reasoned application by the owner. Vessels older than 20 years, also during the starpapskat required hull thickness measurement of the external cladding. 33. The shipping capacity of the certificate made a record of starpapskat. 34. vessels intended for navigation in inland waters only, depending on the technical condition of the ship to the dock, you can replace the starpapskat with the underwater part of the review carried out by divers. 3.5. Extraordinary inspections. 35 extraordinary sights: 21.8. If the accident;
35.2. periodic screening requirements and result in notes due shall, if the due date does not coincide with the annual inspection;

Ice conditions for hulls strengthened according to the expected shipping conditions and activities in the district. 40. the ship shall be fitted with a watertight collision bulkhead-bulkheads, fore: 24.9. not less than 0.05 L and not more than 0.08 L from the bow perpendicular-ships of 65 metres in length and over;
40.2. not less than 0.05 L and not more than 0.05 L plus 1.35 meters from bow perpendicular-vessels of less than 65 metres;
40.3. no closer than two metres from the perpendicular of the bow, but in vessels of less than 24 metres: not closer than one metre from the perpendicular of the bow-in any case. 41. when an underwater part of the hull at a point has been raised ahead of the bow below the perpendicular (for example, the front of the bulb), the provisions referred to in paragraph 40, the distance is measured from the raised parts of the length or midpoint of a point at 0.015 L forward from the perpendicular of the bow (the measures the smallest distance). 42. Partitions can create steps or niche, subject to this provision in paragraph 40 above distances. 43. the conclusion of the bulkhead, the opening features in these bulkheads, closing mechanism and their test methods comply with the requirements of the classification in accordance with the SOLAS Convention, chapter II-1.-1.-1. the provisions of part 3. Vessels are not built of wood, and the collision bulkhead shall be fitted with watertight bulkheads between at least the engine room, cargo space and living space. This bulkhead extends to the working deck. Also wooden vessels as possible be equipped with watertight bulkheads. 44. the pipes that pass through the collision bulkhead shall be fitted with valves, which leads are eliminated above the working deck. Valve box secured to the collision bulkhead inside the forepeak. In the collision bulkhead below the working deck must not be fitted to doors, hatches, ventilation or other openings. Where pipes, channels, and electrical cables pass through watertight bulkheads, arrangements shall be made to ensure that the bulkheads. 45. If the front long body, installed collision bulkhead shall be watertight up to the next deck above the working deck. The partition is not extended directly above the lower part situated this provision provided for in paragraph 40. In this case, the part of the Board that make waterproof the building steps. 46. in the collision bulkhead above the working deck shall be provided with only the minimum number of opens, which provides the service. These vents form the watertight seal and it hinges shall be so arranged that, in the conclusion of the open feature (for example, cover, door) would only open toward the bow. 47. vessels whose length is 85 metres in length and over, a double from the collision bulkhead to bulkhead, ahterpīķ if this is practically possible. 4.2. Watertight door 48. number of Open this provision provided for in paragraph 43 of the water-tight bulkheads are reduced to the minimum consistent with the vessel's design and operational needs. Openings shall be provided with the SOLAS Convention, chapter II-1-part 1 of 3-1. requirements for watertight sealing products. Watertight doors constructed as resistant as the surrounding structures that do not open. 49. On vessels with a length of less than 45 metres in length, the door can be opened and the type of opening from both sides. They are kept closed, the ship while at sea. Both sides of places stating that the door should be closed when the ship is at sea. 50. the new vessels of 500 gross tonnage and more, sliding watertight door of the type has the following spaces: 50.1. in rooms where it is intended that the door can be opened when the vessel while in the sea, and the lower edge of the door below the deepest operating waterline, unless exceptions are not matched with the inspection;

50.2. the bottom of the engine, if the door closes the entrance shaft tunnel. In other cases, the watertight door may be opened inwards. Slīdošaj watertight doors must be running if the ship is banked in to 15 to one or the other side. 51. The sliding watertight doors (both with manual drive and other drives) so constructed that they can be operated from both sides. In vessels of 45 metres in length and above, this door is with distance management from easily accessible position above the working deck, except when the door is placed in the crew accommodation. 52. Under the management of the distance, makes it possible to determine if the sliding door is open or closed. 53. the outer Hull openings shall be closed so as to prevent water entering the ship. The Board, which must be open, placed as close as possible to a Diametral plane of the vessel. 4.3. Splash-proof doors 54. all entry holes in walls and closed body styles in other external structures through which the water can flow into and a danger to the ship, equipped with fixed to the bulkhead mounted with the door frame and reinforcements to design strength would be equivalent to the construction without a way of opening and closed in a sprayproof and weathertight manner. Features that ensure the tightness of the door consists of seals and lever arch mechanisms or other equivalent equipment, they are either attached to the wall or door and operated both from outside and from the inside. 55. Border height door leading to the engine room, shaft and staircase down from the deck of the parts that are subject to direct atmospheric and sea, is at least 600 mm on a job board, and at least 300 mm to the superstructure deck. If there is a positive life experience and inspection is confirmed, this can reduce the height to 380 mm and 150 mm, except for the door that led directly to the engine room. 4.4. Luke with wooden covers 56. Luke border height is at least 600 mm above the working deck open places and at least 300 mm above the superstructure deck. 57. in determining the thickness of wooden hatch covers, made for a reserve for the wear that occurs during operation. Provides the final thickness of the cover at least four millimeters for the distance between the cover support points every 100 mm, but not less than 40 mm. Door support surfaces is at least 65 mm. 58. Methods, which provide a wooden hatch cover watertight integrity, consistent with the inspection. On the new ships wooden hatch cover watertight integrity is guaranteed in accordance with the requirements of the 1966 International Convention on load lines mark and its 1988 Protocol (hereinafter referred to as the LL Convention, 66), 14 and 15 of annex I.. 4.5. Luke with the lids of the other 59. Luke border height is determined according to the provisions of paragraph 56. If there is a positive life experience and confirm the inspection, border height can be reduced or the borders may be, if this does not impair the safety of the ship. In this case, here is a small opening, and cover fixed with hinges reinforced or with any equivalent feature. Provides for the possibility of the hatch quickly close and nail down the boards. 60. strength calculation assumes that manhole covers are subject to static load uzkraujam load. Load size is determined as follows: kN/m2 ships of 24 metres in length and less; kN/m2 ships of 100 metres or more. 61. vessels with a length between these limits, the load shall be determined by linear interpolation. Inspection permit to reduce these pressures, but they must not be less than 75% of the listed sizes here, located on the deck of the body more than 0.25 L on the back of the bow perpendicular. 62. If the manhole covers made of thickness of mild steel, in accordance with the provisions of the 60 calculated maximum voltage multiplied by the resistance of the material, do not exceed 4.25. With this load does not exceed 0.0028 deformation of the cover from a distance between cover point. 63. If the manhole covers are made of thickness of mild steel, ensure that their strength would be the equivalent of the thickness of mild steel made cover and ensure the integrity of the design of the water tightness of the rules referred to in paragraph 60 of the loads. 64.

Down are placed as close as possible to a Diametral plane of the vessel. 4.7. Fans for new 68. vessels of 45 metres in length and above, a fan (if not the engine room fans) channel border height 900 mm to ensure at least a job board and at least 760 mm on the superstructure deck. On vessels of less than 45 metres, the height of the border provide at least 760 mm respectively and 450 mm. Engine fan (if they are intended for continuous engine room ventilation and, if necessary, immediate generator room for ventilation) open height above the deck meets the rules requirements of paragraph 70. Where the size of the vessel and equipment because it is not enforceable, admissible less height, but in all cases it must not be less than 900 mm above the working deck or swap the deck provided that the watertight closing appliances in accordance with the provisions of paragraph 69 in combination with other measures to ensure continuous and adequate ventilation in these facilities. 69. Ensure that ventilation channel strength would be the equivalent of the borders surrounding the design strength. Channels are built in a sprayproof and weathertight manner fitting with fixed to the channel or the conclusion of the design attached. If the ventilation channel altitudes exceeding 900 mm border, particularly strengthened. 70. For vessels of 45 metres in length and higher if the ventilation channel border is higher than 4.5 metres above the working deck of 2.3 meters or higher above the superstructure deck, sealing features are not required, if the maritime administration has not adopted special requirements. On vessels of less than 45 metres in length, the sealing means are not required ventilation channels that border above about 3.4 meters above the working deck and the top of 1.7 metres above the superstructure deck. If the inspection is convinced that it is unlikely the water entering the vessel through the engine room fans, these fan channels can be without a conclusion. 4.8 air tubes 71. If the cargo hold and zemklāj the empty volume of the air pipes are displayed above the working deck or a superstructure deck, pipe in the open part of the endurance event is equivalent to the surrounding structure and equipped with adequate protection. Openings of air pipes shall be provided with means of closing that are mounted to the stationary tube or surrounding structures. 72. air pipe height above the deck (places where water may penetrate inside the vessel) provides at least 760 mm on the working deck and at least 450 mm on the superstructure deck. 4.9. the means of Measuring 73.

Ensure compliance with such stability criteria (if not impeded the operation experience of the fight that inspections permitted derogations from them): 95.1. the area under the righting lever curve (GZ curve) shall not be less than 0.55 m × creates heeling in the range of 0 ° to 30 ° and not less than 0.09 m × creates heeling in the range of 0 ° to 40 °, or the angle of flooding θf if it is less than 40 °. Accordingly, the area under the righting lever curve (GZ curve) shall not be less than 0.03 m × creates side-in the range of 30 ° weighing up to 40 ° or between 30 ° and the angle of flooding θf if it is less than 40 °. Flooding the angle of heel θf are the angle when through the openings in the hull, superstructure or deck houses which cannot be quickly close an impervious, started a small quantity of the water and the vessel began to sink. Small openings through which large quantities of water can not flow into the hull, are not considered to be open;
95.2. righting GZ with bank angle, equal to 30 ° or more, not less than 200 mm; 95.3. righting GZMAX reaches the maximum value, where the angle of heel not less than 30 °. In this case a reasonable angle not less than 25 °;
95.4. the vessel initial metacentric height corrected for the GM shall not be less than 150 mm. 96. If the yaw amplitude reduction used different equipment than cumin wedges, inspection will ensure that compliance with the rules referred to in paragraph 95 of the stability criteria provided in all the loading times. 97. the various impacts (for example, sānvējš ships with a large silhouette of the ship, the ship above water parts icing, water trapped on deck, the yaw parameter, līdzskrejoš waves), which significantly affect the stability, respect the calculations. 98. Stability is sufficient at all stages of the voyage, when additional load piemirkšan and icing, as well as load reduction of the fuel consumption of the item. 99. If a ship carrying oil products in bulk form, make sure that the inspection rules referred to in paragraph 95 of the stability criteria are saved in the entire loading and balastēšan operations. 5.2 weather criteria (strong Crosswinds and zvalstīb total effects) 100. ability to withstand strong gusts and crosswinds of simultaneous exposure test zvalstīb, slogoj of the ship with a dynamically applied wind heeling moment, taking into account the amplitude of zvalstīb (surges heeling angle). The stability criterion is satisfactory in this case must demonstrate that the worst of the wind pressure load of the dynamic heeling moment of the MW job, taking into account the amplitude yaw (1. drawing area "a"), is equal to or less than the righting moment of the work (area "b" under the righting lever curve). This condition shall be considered satisfied if: CWr = area "b" must be not less than 1 (> 1).
  area "a" 101. the test for Resistance to wind and at the same time zvalstīb effect is carried out in the following order: 101.1. the ship exposed to constant wind pressure perpendicular to the plane of the vessel being diametrically opposed, the result is permanent heeling moment in MW1 with shoulder of 101.2 heeling angle θO standing wave effects resulted in the vessel to the weighted against the wind (heeling angle θ1). The constant wind generated heeling angle θO is such that the resulting angle of heel (θO + θ1) would not be excessive. Therefore angle θO value limited to 16 ° or 80% of the angle at which the deck edge entering the water (whichever is less);
101.3. when tilted, the ship is exposed to the wind pressure resulting in wind gusts a tilting moment MW2 with shoulder 101.4. in those circumstances, the Reed area chart "b" is equal to the area of the "a" or higher on it (Figure 1); 101.5. you draw a Reed, should be taken into account in the chart of liquid cargo free surface correction.

The drawing shows the angles are defined as follows:-heeling angle θO from constant wind effects;
θl-tip the angle opposite to the direction of wave action;
the angle θ2-flooding (θf), 50 ° or less θC, whichever;
θC-Reed and tilt the shoulder angle the second intersection lw2.
Addressing this challenge, it is assumed that the wind heeling moment lw1 and lw2 shoulders is constant for all bank angle and can be calculated as follows: p = 504 [CN × m-2]-wind pressure. Ships sailing in maritime areas, limited p value can be reduced by agreement with the maritime administration;

Free surface effects to be taken into account when the cargo tank filling level is less than 98% of full State. Free surface effect is not taken into account the nominal full cargo tanks when the filling level is 98% or more. The free-surface effects of small cargo tanks shall not be taken into account if these provisions are in force, paragraph 111. 104. the cargo tanks, which are taken into account in calculating the free surface corrections are the following categories: 104.1. the cargo hold with a fixed tank level (for example, liquid cargo, ballast water). Free surface correction is calculated for the filling level real in each cargo tank;
104.2. cargo tank with a variable level of filling (for example, use liquid-fuel, diesel and water, as well as the sweet liquid cargo and ballast water is the fluid transfer operations). Free surface adjustment is the maximum attainable value between prospective filling limits for each cargo tank according to instructions for any operation. 105. The calculation of free-surface effects of the cargo tanks containing liquids are used, it is assumed that each type of liquid at least one pair of cargo holds or pass through a separate Center for cargo holds is a free surface and the cargo tank or cargo hold in the calculation is the combination with the free surface effect is greatest. 106. when water ballast (also the appeasement of tanks and zvalstīb heel buffer load facilities) are filled or emptied during the expedition, the free surface effect is calculated, taking into account all those adverse occurrences in the operation. 107. a ship carrying liquid cargo free surface correction resulting in any liquid stage of freight is calculated according to the level of the filling on each carriage of the cargo holds in this stage. 108. The initial metacentric height and the curve of righting lever (the static stability diagram) adjustment is examined separately by the following: 108.1. calculating the initial metacentric height adjustment, liquid cargo free surface area moment of inertia against the central axis which is parallel to the plane, said the ship is set 0 ° heeling angle according to the rules referred to in paragraph 104;
