What does the Special Purpose Ship Safety Certificate cover?

More or less the same items as a Passenger Ship Safety Certificate, with the exception of subdivision load lines (which a special purpose ship does not have), and substituting “provisions of the Code” for “provisions of SOLAS”. (The Special Purpose Ships Code, not SOLAS, contains the requirements for construction, LSA and FFE, etc. of special purpose ships.)
