When I started writing my project about Chapter I, ll-I and 11-2 of SOLAS 74 as amended, I was confused about what to mention and discuss in my thesis due to the extent and the difficulties of the chapters. Finally I confined myself to the provisions concerning surveys to which passenger ships are subject. The project describes the minimum knowledge which a surveyor should have in order to carry out the surveys specified in the international provisions and regulations. This paper is an attempt to produce a booklet for surveyors. I have to remind the reader that this work is limited to Chapter 1,11-1,11-2 with the hope that this booklet will be completed by the future MSA students of the World Maritime University.
