Appraisal of design documentation

Send request

Construction of ships and marine equipment shall be carried out in accordance with the technical documentation approved (agreed) by the Register.

Appraisal of design documentation is carried out in order to verify the compliance of the technical supervision items with the RS requirements, applicable international conventions and the requirements of the maritime administrations.

As part of the appraisal of design documentation, the Register makes a thorough assessment of all principal drawings, including, but not limited to:

  • hull structure;

  • liquefied natural gas storage systems;

  • stability and subdivision;

  • fire-fighting equipment and systems;

  • equipment, arrangements and outfit;

  • environmental protection and mechanical equipment;

  • propellers;

  • shafting;

  • diesel engine crankshafts;

  • gears,

  • steam boilers,

  • heat exchangers and pressure vessels;

  • ship power stations, high-voltage installations;

  • low current equipment;

  • cables and wires;

  • explosion-proof electrical equipment;

  • automation systems for propulsion plants and dynamic positioning systems;

  • electrical equipment of boiler plants and auxiliary machinery;

  • central control and alarm warning systems;

  • computers, programmable controllers;

  • local automated devices;

  • sensors and signal indicators.

Appraisal of design documentation for ship under construction

Before the construction of a ship, technical documentation shall be submitted to the Register to ensure that the Register requirements for the ship are met.

As part of the appraisal, it is possible both to review the full package of documents, and to review the documentation by individual parts (hull, mechanisms, systems, electrical equipment, etc.).

Within the framework of this service, the Register also conducts an appraisal of the design documentation of a project that was previously approved by RS and revised as of the new date of the construction contract.

According to the appraisal results, a Conclusion Letter is sent to the Customer. 

Appraisal of technical design followed by review of working documentation

If, at the time of the development of design documentation, there is no complete information available on the suppliers of machinery, equipment, materials, the appraisal of design documentation may be conducted in two stages.

Within the framework of the two-stage appraisal scheme, the main drawings of the technical design are reviewed at the first stage. Subsequently, the appraisal of the working documentation for the ship under construction is carried out at the second stage.

As part of the appraisal, it is possible both to review the full package of documents, and to review the documentation by individual parts (hull, mechanisms, systems, electrical equipment, etc.) at each stage of the documentation review.

Within the framework of this service, the Register also conducts an appraisal of the design documentation of a project that was previously approved by RS and revised as of the new date of the construction contract.

Based on the results of each appraisal stage, a Conclusion Letter is sent to the Customer. 

Appraisal of conceptually new engineering solutions

If fundamentally new engineering solutions are used, as well as for the purpose of feasibility studies, tenders, etc., the Register may conduct an appraisal of terms of reference, technical proposal, tender documentation, sketch design and other documentation that is characterized by a high degree of novelty.

According to the appraisal results, a Conclusion Letter is sent to the Customer.
