Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies (ISO

member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO technical

committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been established has

the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in

liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical

Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 3.

Draft International Standards adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting.

Publication as an International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this International Standard may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard ISO 17631 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 8, Ships and marine technology,

Subcommittee SC 1, Lifesaving and fire protection. It is intended to supplement International Maritime Organization

(IMO) requirements and recommendations for arrangement of shipboard plans used on commercial vessels

complying with the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), 1974, as amended.

Annex A forms a normative part of this International Standard. Annex B is for information only.

Introduction

This International Standard has been developed taking into account the existing IMO guidance on the subject as

listed in the bibliography. The symbols in annex A generally conform to the corresponding symbols given in IMO

Resolutions A.654(16) ([3] in the bibliography) and A.760(18) ([7] in the bibliography) but, as far as the symbols for

fire plans are concerned, it was deemed necessary to carry out the following changes.

a) The colour code given in ISO 14726-1 and ISO 14726-2 ([11] and [12] in the bibliography) has been adopted in

order to render more evident the various types of systems/content of equipment present on board and for

which the same symbol is used. This reduces the number of symbols referring to similar systems or equipment

and, consequently, avoids cluttering of the plans.

b) With the aim of rendering them more comprehensible to people on board and to shoreside fire-fighting

personnel, who might be called to operate onboard, a small number of symbols (e.g. the one referring to fire

hydrant and hose) contained in IMO Resolution A.654(16) have been modified in order to harmonize them with

ISO 6309 ([10] in the bibliography).

3 Preparation of plans
3.1 General

3.1.1 The number and types of plans to be carried on board a particular ship shall meet the requirements of the

competent authority.

3.1.2 No illustration in any plan shall be made to a scale smaller than 1:200 with minimum line point size of 4,5 for

main vertical zone divisions, 2,25 for A and B class divisions, and 0,75 for other lines. Large plans may be

subdivided for clarity.

3.1.3 Fire-protection appliances and structural fire protection should be placed in separate plans. Main vertical

zones, if any, shall be marked and identified in both fire-protection appliances and structural fire-protection plans.

However, depending on the quantity of information to be taken into account for presentation, more than one

particular plan may be combined or consolidated, under the judgement of the competent authority, provided that

the combined or consolidated plans are properly legible. In addition, consideration may be given to drawing up

separate fire plans for machinery spaces and deck areas.

3.1.4 A legend of symbols and explanations shall be a constituent part of any plan and contain a list of the

graphical symbols used in the plan, together with the appropriate explanations, and may include, in some

instances, additional special information such as the type of extinguishing media used in the fixed fire-extinguishing

system(s). As a rule, the legend shall be inserted in the appropriate drawing. It shall indicate, next to each symbol,

the number of each particular item of fire-protection equipment and arrangements provided. For clarity, preferably

only one font type shall be used for text in plans developed in accordance with this International Standard. The

minimum letter point size shall be 12. The legend should preferably be placed at the right-hand side of the plan.

3.1.5 The information required shall be shown deck by deck; names of internal spaces and cabin numbering shall

also be shown.

3.1.6 The graphical symbols shown in normative annex A shall be used when developing the plans referred to in

this International Standard. The colours shall be in accordance with annex A. A summary of all symbols included in

annex A is given in Table 1. The graphical symbols used in plans and booklets shall be of suitable size to ensure

that they remain understandable and shall not be smaller than 6 mm by 6 mm. Generally symbols shall not be

framed. All symbols shall be positioned on plans in a manner to clearly indicate the appropriate position on the

vessel but, to avoid clutter, symbols may be placed outside the plan with a dot and line to indicate the actual

position. In the latter case, the line shall have a point size greater than the minimum line point size adopted for the

general arrangement plan.

c) which additional fire-safety measures, if any, were applied; and

d) dates and descriptions of any modifications to the ship which altered its fire safety.

3.1.8 For passenger ships, for modifications carried out before 1 October 1994, if the dates and descriptions of

such modifications are not available, at least the fire safety construction method currently used in the ship shall be

stated. Where more than one method or a combination of methods is used in different locations of the ship, this

shall be specified.

3.1.9 Texts in plans and booklets shall be in the language or languages required by the competent authority.

Where more than one language is used on plans, these separate languages shall be indicated with different font

types.

The languages used should take into account the requirements of the IMO ISM Code with regard to the working

languages of the ship.
3.2 Fire-protection appliances plan

3.2.1 The plan shall show the arrangement and location of the fire-protection appliances in annex A, symbols A.2.1

to A.2.44, together with means of access to compartments, decks, etc. Where spaces or deck areas are protected by

fixed fire-extinguishing systems, the amount of fire-extinguishing medium, except water, shall be indicated in the plan.

3.2.2 The contents of each fire locker shall be indicated in the legend. The items contained in a fire locker need

not be indicated on the plan.
3.3 Structural fire-protection plan

The plan shall show the arrangement and location of the structural fire-protection details in normative annex A,

symbols A.1.1 to A.1.18.
3.4 Means of escape plan

The plan shall show each means of escape and access within the ship and identify assembly and embarkation

stations. Primary and secondary escape routes, as applicable, shall be identified by arrows as indicated in

annex A, symbols A.3.1 and A.3.2.

NOTE For means of escape on passenger ships, reference may be made to IMO resolution A.757(18) ([6] in the

bibliography).
3.5 Life-saving appliances plan

3.5.1 The plan shall show the arrangement and location of the items in normative annex A, symbols A.4.1 to

A.4.29. In addition, the plan shall indicate the quantity of each particular item of life-saving appliances and

arrangements provided, and the capacity of each assembly station. The number and capacity of survival craft at

each stowage position shall be indicated in the legend, or at the bottom of the appropriate symbol.

3.5.2 The content of each safety locker shall be indicated in the legend. The items in a safety locker need not be

indicated on the plan.

3.5.3 Where lifejackets are installed in cabins, this shall be clearly indicated on the plan.

3.5.4 Where embarkation stations are not in direct proximity to survival craft, their location(s) shall be clearly

indicated on the plan.
