What are subdivision load lines?

Load lines indicating the depth to which a passenger ship may be loaded having regard to the extent to which the ship is subdivided and to the space for the time being allotted to passengers. They are additional to the ship’s ordinary load lines and, on a UK ship, are assigned and marked to correspond with the subdivision draughts approved by the MCA for alternative service conditions. They are permitted under SOLAS regulation II-1/13.
