Emergency Response Procedures for Ships Carrying Dangerous Goods ("The EmS Guide");
A signed undertaking given by cargo receivers stating that, in return for delivery to them or to their order of the goods noted in the bond, they agree to pay the proper proportion of any general average charges (and salvage or special charges) which may thereafter be ascertained to be due from the goods. Lloyd's Average Bond form (LAB 77) is normally used.
Statutory enforcement notices used in the UK (and some other countries) to enforce (chiefly) health and safety legislation. A Prohibition Notice prohibits an unsafe operation or the use of an unsafe item of equipment, and an Improvement Notice requires specified improvements to bring health and safety arrangements up to regulation standard within a specified period. Non- observance of their requirements leads to a prosecution by the issuing body.
Information related to the ship, its machinery and equipment or to rule requirements which does not require survey or corrective action, e. g. exemptions from rule requirements. MOs (or "class memoranda") may be issued relating to items considered to be of no immediate material significance regarding safety, but which may be of use to owners.
