Life Jacket & Immersion Suits

Inspection immersion suit

Immersion suits should be inspected by the crew monthly on board, according to SOLAS III/20.7 and MCS/Cric. 1047. It is also recommended that each suit is subjected to an air pressure test such as the following, at intervals not exceeding three years and more frequently for suits over ten years of age.

As per IMO Guidelines (MSC/Circ. 1114), monthly shipboard inspections of immersion suits are not adequate enough to identify deterioration of seams and closure of these suits. Hence, in order to ensure the maintenance of adequate strength and water tightness of seams and closures of immersion suits with age, it is recommended to subject the immersion suits to an annual air pressure test.
