Continuous Synopsis Record (CSR)
As required by SOLAS XI-1/5.4.3, vessels must have a CSR issued by the flag Administration. The CSR is intended to provide an on-board record of the history of the ship and should remain on board for the duration of the vessel’s active life.
After submitting Forms 2 and 3 to the Administration, make sure the CSR amendment and index are retained on the vessel as required by SOLAS XI-1/5.4.3. The amendment and index forms will serve in place of the new CSR which is to be issued as soon as possible and is to be on the ship no later than three months from the date of the change in accordance with SOLAS XI-1/5.4.2.
