The Danish Maritime Authority can authorize certain ships to perform the mandatory surveys by themselves.
Nothing is needed.
The scheme applies to every second periodical main survey of special purpose ships (inter alia ships worthy of preservation and recreational fishing vessels) as well as the intermediate survey of fishing vessels with a length between 15 and 24 meters.
When can I expect an answer?
In straightforward cases, you can expect to get an answer from the Danish Maritime Authority within one month.
In case of rejection:
The Danish Maritime Authority will give advice on how to fulfil the requirements.
If you own one of the above-mentioned types of ships and would like to have an opportunity to perform self-monitoring, you can arrange this with the ship surveyor next time your ship is surveyed.
The condition for being permitted to perform self-monitoring is that no technical or operational defects were found on the ship at the previous survey. Furthermore, it is a condition that no occupational or marine accidents occur on the ship concerned during the period until the self-monitoring.
If you are permitted to perform self-monitoring, you must use the documents below:
