Do flag State Administrations lay down detailed rules for the strength, construction and maintenance of ships flying their flags?

No. They generally ensure that ships flying their flags are built to the standards, as regards hull, machinery, electrical installations and control installations, of a recognised organisation, which is usually a classification society authorised by the flag State Administration.
