PRS provides these services in the form of direct and indirect surveys.
The direct survey is conducted through examinations, inspections and audits.
The indirect survey is conducted in the form of product certification, type approval of products and materials, manufacturing procedure approval, approval of industrial plants (manufacturing or repair), test stations, measurement laboratories, qualification verification of specialists working under PRS survey, e.g. welders if their qualifications have a direct effect on the technical safety of vessels.
PRS may also undertake technical survey of vessels under construction, modification or repair as well as the existing vessels which are not subject to any prescribed requirements. At the ship operator’s request, PRS may conduct technical survey in the contractual scope. As a result of such a survey PRS issues the Certificate of Fitness for Sailing or other document specified in the contract.
Any survey is undertaken by PRS following a written request.
