For how long may certificates covered by the HSSC be extended, and for what purpose?

Any certificate covered by the HSSC may be extended for up to three months (or for ships on short voyages, for a period of grace of one month) so that the renewal survey can be carried out.

A ship is delayed on a voyage to a survey port where her harmonised certificates are due to be renewed. How should a request be made for an extension of the validity of the certificates?

In the HSSC, where a renewal survey is completed within 3 months before the expiry of the relevant SOLAS certificate, for how long may the new certificate be issued?
