ANNEX
UNIFIED INTERPRETATIONS OF REGULATION 36(6) OF THE PROTOCOL OF 1988 RELATING TO THE INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION ON LOAD LINES, 1966
Regulation 36(6) – Continuous hatchways
Generally two types of "continuous hatchways" can be distinguished:
.1 In case of a single hatchway, the hatchway may be regarded as a "continuous hatchway".
.2 In case more than one hatchway is fitted, the following arrangement may be considered as a "continuous hatchway", too:
Detached hatchways linked by weathertight decked steel structures in between. The hatchways are connected by longitudinal coamings connected transversally by decked steel structures. In this case, the equivalent "continuous hatchway" is the entire enclosed volume of the single hatchways and the weathertight spaces between them.
.3 In case more than one hatchway is fitted, the following arrangements should not be regarded as "continuous hatchways":
(1) Detached hatchways: Each hatchway is to be considered as a "separated detached trunk", thus each hatchway may be treated separately as a trunk in the freeboard computation.
(2) Detached hatchways connected by longitudinal coamings: All hatchways may be treated in the same manner as (1).
