Thickness Measurement Firms
Under Procedural Requirement 23 (PR 23), Classification Societies (CS) which are subject
to verification of compliance with QSCS are obliged to report (via email) any
change in the status of approval of thickness measurement
(TM) companies to other IACS Members. Each CS maintains a list of TM approved companies at its website that can be interrogated
by other CS using the link provided in the table below.
The new updating obligations include the addition of newly-approved
TM firms, and the date when approval expires or when it is
cancelled. Prior to issuing a new certificate of
approval, or renewing/endorsing the certificate of a TM firm,
the CS will be required to check the database/file list of other CS for
information on status. If the TM firm in question has been
the subject of a cancellation of approval,
the CS will be required to take any necessary
measures to substantiate the approval.
For queries relating to updates to TM Firms, please contact
the relevant society - contact details may be found in PR 23.
The Thickness Measurement (TM) Firm database/file lists are maintained by individual CS.
The lists cover TM Firms for ships subject to Enhanced Survey Programme (ESP)
Comments on the publication and suggestions for correctness are always welcome and should be forwarded to relevant CS.
In particular, TM Firms listed are invited to check their details and report to the CS
concerned should any inaccurate data be found.
Terms and conditions apply to the information contained in this page.
