It is the survey of vessels or marine structures undertaken either before the vessel or structure is delivered into a charter, or re-delivered from a charter.

The purpose of these On-hire surveys/Off-hire surveys is principally to determine the extent of damage, other than fair wear and tear, which may have occurred to the ship between two dates, usually those of the commencement and termination of charter. Whilst the determination of damage is the principle purpose of the two requisite reports, one being at the 'On-hire' survey and the other at the 'Off-hire' survey, there are often three other requirements.

- The checking of documents and certificates.

- The establishment of quantities of fuel and stores on board.

- The establishment of the cleanliness of the cargo spaces On-hire surveys/Off-hire surveys can be very important for a client when hiring a vessel to limit their liability, by ensuring they have the correct information on the condition of the vessel and work required in respect of the charter party.
