ClassNK releases Guidelines for Remote Surveys

ClassNK has released “Guidelines for Remote Surveys” in preparation for carrying out remote surveys using Information and Communication Technology (ICT).

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} Remote surveys, which include those that use ICT for information collection in the survey process and substitute the survey under the presence of the surveyor, are assumed to be performed while collecting information necessary for the survey via internet line by using a smartphone or tablet. This enables the surveyor in a remote location and the onboard crew to communicate with each other and exchange information.

The guidelines by ClassNK outline requirements to apply to remote surveys for some types of occasional surveys. From now on, ClassNK will implement remote surveys that satisfy the requirements.

ClassNK has been working on the advancement of surveys using digital technology in research and development in line with its R&D roadmap developed in 2017. The Society aims to implement more sophisticated and rational surveys using various digital technologies such as IoT technology, ICT, big data, AI, condition monitoring/evaluation, and robotics. Specifically, the classification society aims to develop remote surveys using ICT, ship survey systems for both hull and machinery based on condition monitoring/evaluation technology, and individual digital ship records using digital twins.

For remote surveys using ICT, ClassNK has investigated and examined the types of surveys that can be applied, the types and amounts of information required for remote surveys, and the requirements for the use of ICT, ensuring reliability equivalent to conventional witness surveys with transparency in the application of remote surveys. The guidelines are outcomes of these results and will be reviewed as necessary in accordance with the progress of related technology development.

The Guidelines for Remote Surveys are available to download free of charge via ClassNK’s website www.classnk.com {/mprestriction}
