General:

in addition to the testing standards specifically mentioned, a number of provisions, which must be checked during type-examination (type approval) as referred to in the modules for conformity assessment in Annex B, are to be found in the applicable requirements of the international conventions and the relevant resolutions and circulars of the IMO.

Column 5:

Where IMO Resolutions are cited, only the testing standards contained in relevant parts of the Annexes to the Resolutions are applicable and exclude the provisions of the Resolutions themselves.

Column 5:

For the purpose of identifying correctly the relevant standards, the test reports and the appropriate type-approval certificates shall specify the specific testing standard applied and its version, as identified in column 5.

Column 5:

Where two sets of testing standards are indicated (separated by a ";" or separated by a "or"), each set fulfils all the testing requirements to meet IMO Performance Standards. Thus testing to one set is sufficient to demonstrate compliance with the requirements of the relevant International Instruments.

Column 6:

Where module H appears, module H plus design-examination certificate is to be understood.
