In-service survey, inspections, thorough examinations and certification are to be carried out as required by LOLER.Β 

Records and service history should be kept of equipment, of when and where it is brought into use, its safe working load, any repairs, modifications, tests and examinations carried out. All ships must maintain a Register of Lifting Appliances and Cargo Handling Gear in a form based on the model recommended by the ILO and shown at Annex 21. 2 of the Code of Safe Working Practices for Merchant Seamen.
