The holds cleanliness condition survey is conducted to ensure the cargo holds condition before loading, ascertaining whether the holds are ready to load the nominated cargo or not.
Most of times, our attendance for holds cleanliness survey is requested for vessel’s scheduled to load grains or sensitive cargoes.
Upon receiving appointment, we hire boat service and grant authorization from local Port Authorities to access the vessel at Anchorage area to perform the holds cleanliness condition survey.
Our main concerns during hold cleanliness surveys are:
Upon completion of holds cleanliness survey, our attending Surveyors issue a Field Survey Report approving of refuting vessel’s holds’ condition for loading intended cargo(es).
In case of refuting vessel’s holds, recommendations to vessel’s Command are made, in order to reach cleanliness condition to load intended cargo(es).
The Field Survey Report is sent to our client at same date of attendance aboard and a complete survey report including large volume of photos is issued on the next day.
