ANNEX
UNIFIED INTERPRETATION OF SOLAS REGULATION XI-1/7
Provision of suitable means for the calibration of portable atmosphere testing instruments
Compliance with the provision "suitable means shall be provided for the calibration of all such instruments" in SOLAS regulation XI-1/7, as adopted by resolution MSC.380(94), may be achieved by portable atmosphere testing instruments being calibrated on board or ashore in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.
For the avoidance of any doubt, the above clarification refers to the calibration of portable atmosphere testing instruments, as required by SOLAS regulation XI-1/7, and not to any pre-operational accuracy tests as recommended by the manufacturer.
