How many letters may be used on a load line ring?

Not more than 4. (The South African Committee of Lloyd’s Register uses 4: “SA” above the Plimsoll line and “LR” below the line.)

Where a passenger ship is marked with subdivision load lines as well as ordinary load lines, which is the appropriate load line for the purposes of The Merchant Shipping (Load Line) Regulations 1998?

What is the purpose of the letters (e. g. “LR”) on a load line mark?
