These guidelines are intended as advice on the preparation of damage control plans for passenger and cargo
ships to which SOLAS regulations II-1/23, II-1/23-1 and II-1/25-8 apply.
2.1 The damage control plan and damage control booklet are intended to provide ship's officers with clear information on the ship's watertight compartmentation and equipment related to maintaining the boundaries and effectiveness of the compartmentation so that, in the event of damage to the ship causing flooding, proper precautions can be taken to prevent progressive flooding through openings therein and effective action can be taken quickly to mitigate and, where possible, recover the ship's loss of stability.
