Classification societies agreed in 2001 that ultrasonic testing, when carried out with class type-approved equipment and qualified operators, was acceptable as an alternative method to hose testing for determining the weathertight integrity of hatch covers for class and statutory inspections. IACS developed standards and criteria under IACS UR Z17 for firms engaged in ultrasonic testing. This was necessary to ensure that surveyors checking hatch covers for class and statutory purposes were familiar with the theory of ultrasound and had practical testing experience and basic knowledge of hatch-cover design, maintenance and repairs. Calibrated and classification society type-approved equipment should always be used so that repeatability of test results is guaranteed.
