What are statutory surveys?

Surveys required by law, i. e. (for a UK ship) by Act of Parliament or regulations made under an Act. They generally lead to the issue or endorsement of a statutory certificate. Class surveys are not a statutory requirement, although class surveyors often carry out statutory surveys under the authority of a flag State.
