The DCI is intended to provide the ship’s officers with clear information on the ship’s watertight subdivision and equipment related to maintaining the integrity of the watertight boundaries so that in the event of ship damage-causing flooding proper precautions can be taken to prevent progressive flooding. The DCI should consist of: Damage Control Plan, Damage Control Manual, External Watertight Integrity Plan, and Internal Watertight Integrity Plan.
