The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has put in force
a new Singapore Standard: Code of Practice for Bunker Surveying

barge / tanker and a vessel. It covers pre-delivery, actual delivery
and post-delivery checks and documentation.
All bunker surveyors operating in the Singapore port are required

are required to comply with SS CP 77 when carrying out bunker surveying
To apply for the licence, bunker surveyors must attend a 2-day Bunker
Surveying Course and pass an examination. The course trains
