  The 2011 ESP Code became mandatory under SOLAS regulation XI-1/2. Parts A and B of annex A of the Code provide the requirements for bulk carriers with single-side skin and double-side skin construction. Parts A and B of annex B of the Code provide the requirements for oil tankers with double-hull and non-double-hull construction. The Code has been designed to closely align with the IACS Unified Requirements (UR) Z10 (Hull surveys).


The ESP Code provides, in particular, requirements for:

  • renewal, annual and intermediate surveys
  • preparations for surveys
  • documentation on board
  • procedures for thickness measurements
  • acceptance criteria
