Section 5 Survey
10.5.1 Survey of the entered vessel
The Club may at any time survey the ship by the Club’s staff, appointed or class surveyors. The surveyors should be allowed access to the ship directly. Documents should be allowed and available to be copied and members of the crew interviewed. Such a survey may be performed to prevent damage from arising or to investigate the cause of an accident which has already occurred. The Club does not need to give a reason for the survey. It may seem unnecessary to mention this in the provision, but experience shows that people acting to protect the Club and the Member do not always receive full co-operation. It follows from Rule 10 Section 3 that the Member must comply with any regulations which may result from the survey.
