    1. Depends on what you need to update.
      Normally this training manual should hold information about your equipments on board plus procedures, trainings, location and so and so on. This is NOT mandatory but always subject to PSC officers. SO IN OTHER WORDS
      you can always update / change the book / manual on board.

      Regards,

      Ronald
      Safety Superintendent.

  12. The minimum requirements of what a SOPEP box must contain is NOT stated in MARPOL regulations. America and the Panama canal do have minimum requirements, so be aware of that when you will sail to these areas.
    Companies that sell SOPEP boxes want you to think these requirements are mandatory, but they are not!

  13. How about chemical for cleaning oil requirement for sopep with chemical and oil tanker

  14. Better make Drainage length around on deck, and there must no any drain line to the sea, when built a ship complete structure. When oil overflow on main deck, oil will go to drainage.
