Two SQAS packages have been developed for the inspection of bulk marine ships:
- Chemical tankers
- Liquefied gas tankers
The questionnaires of both packages consist of two parts:
- A vessel particulars questionnaire (VPQ) which details general information about the ship
- A questionnaire to measure compliance with required standards.
The questionnaires address the management and operational standards of vessels in areas such as certification, manning, navigation, mooring, cargo operations, fire fighting, pollution prevention, hull and superstructure.
The SQAS bulk marine scheme is managed by the CDI (Chemical Distribution Institute).
The ship inspection documents are available on the CDI website.
