Guidance Notes on The Use of Remote Inspection Technologies

active, Most Current
Organization: ABS
Publication Date: 1 December 2022
Status: active
Page Count: 52
scope:

The purpose of these Guidance Notes is to provide information to the marine and offshore industries on:

i) The use of RITs in conjunction with class surveys

ii) The use of RITs in conjunction with non-class-related inspections (i.e., pre-approved by each appropriate flag State for statutory surveys and inspections)

If RITs are used in conjunction with class-related surveys and, when approved by the flag State, statutory activities, it is considered an alternative means of access to assist the attending Surveyor in performing an examination of hard-to-reach structures. RITs should be considered in advance and incorporated into the survey planning phase. Acceptance of the inspection results is at the discretion of the attending Surveyor. The Surveyor may require additional inspections using other alternative or traditional inspection techniques depending on the conditions found and results of the remote inspection.

These Guidance Notes are intended for pilot-operated RIT applications only. Local (Port and/or Country) requirements and regulations for the use of RIVs should be verified and complied with.

These Guidance Notes cover:

Applications of Remote Inspection Technologies (Section 2)

Guidance for Service Supplier Selection (Section 3)

Survey/Inspection Process (Section 4)
