  BMA.B10 - 07/99   http://www.bahamasmaritime.com   email: tech@bahamasmaritime.com BAHAMAS MARITIME AUTHORITY BMA INFORMATION BULLETIN No. 10 ANNUAL INSPECTIONS   Bahamian registered ships are required to undergo an Annual Inspection. The purpose of this inspection is to assess the ship’s overall condition, onboard safety management and the ship’s technical and operational integrity. The inspection can only be carried out by a Bahamian appointed Nautical Inspector. Inspectors’ details are available on request from the London, Nassau or New York offices. Owners should contact the inspector directly to confirm their availability to attend the ship. All costs incurred are for the owners’ account. Fixed Anniversary Date This administration has taken the decision to fix anniversary date for each Bahamian registered ship. This date will remain fixed for the duration of time that the ship remains registered under The Bahamas Flag. There will be an allowance of three (3) months either side of this date for each annual inspection to be carried out. Anniversary dates are fixed as follows: 1. Existing permanently registered ships : The anniversary date is the day and month that the ship was last subjected to a satisfactory Bahamian inspection. (i.e. the day and month indicated on the ship’s last Bahamas Safety Inspection certificate  prior to 19 July, 1999.)  2. Existing provisionally registered ships: The anniversary date is the day and month that the first Bahamian inspection was completed (regardless of whether the ship was required to undergo further inspection(s) to rectify identified deficiencies. (e.g. Ship first inspected on 1st January 1999. Several deficiencies noted that required a  follow-up inspection. Follow-up inspection held on 17th January, 1999. Anniversary date is 1st January)  3. New Ships*:  The anniversary date is the day and month that the first Bahamian inspection was completed (regardless of whether the ship was required to undergo further inspection(s) to rectify identified deficiencies). Extensions will not normally be granted as a six (6) month window in which to obtain each Annual Inspection is considered adequate. (*a new ship, for the purpose of fixing anniversary dates, means a ship registered after 19 July, 1999.)  Ships being taken Out of Service  BMA.B10 - 07/99   http://www.bahamasmaritime.com   email: tech@bahamasmaritime.com If an Owner intends to take a ship out of service for any period exceeding six (6) months, this administration should be advised. Such advice should include: ã Date that the ship is to be taken out of service ã Anticipated time period that the ship is expected to be out of service ã Reason for taking ship out of service Bareboat Chartered Ships under a Foreign Registry Where a Bahamian ship has been registered under a foreign registry for the duration of a bareboat charter, a Bahamian inspection is required at least one (1) month prior to the ship re-entering The Bahamas Flag. This administration should be advised accordingly so that the proper arrangements can be made. Instructions to Inspectors Bahamian Appointed Nautical Inspectors are requested to forward a completed inspection report to the Inspections Department as soon as possible, and in any event, no later than seven (7) days after carrying out an inspection.
