  1. ASTM International Committee on Ships and Marine Technology ( F25) Classification Society Standards Needs Jim Gaughan Vice President & Chief Engineer Washington DC 7 May 2014

  2. Our Mission The Mission of ABS is to serve the public interest as well as the needs of our clients by promoting the security of life and property and preserving the natural environment

  3. The Rules • Developed with intent to establish an acceptable level of safety • Intended to reduce the occurrence of an “undesirable event” threatening life , property or the natural environment • Often reactive to an accident or episode • Some incorporating International (IMO ) Requirements • All should be related to one or more identified risks

  4. Identified Risks • Loss of Structural Integrity • Loss of Propulsion • Loss of Maneuverability • Loss of Electrical Power • Loss of Station Keeping • Loss of Buoyancy or Stability • Loss of Containment – cryogenic fluid , flammable liquid or vapor • Fire and Explosion • Overpressure / Underpressure • Personnel hazards – radiant heat, electrical shock, axphisiation

  5. Source of Requirements • Internally developed safety criteria • Hull Structural • Mechanical components of steering, station keeping and propulsion systems • Control system functional requirements • IMO / SOLAS • Stability , subdivision , fire protection , marine pollution , electrical power , communication systems , liquefied gas containment systems • Applicable Industry standards • Machinery components , electrical and instrumentation systems and components , piping systems and components , containment and fluid processing components , lifting appliances, deck machinery, venting, delineation of hazardous areas, drilling equipment , safety systems and components

  6. Recognized Standards • Normally recognized by the home National Government • Not less effective than a standard acceptable to ABS • Addresses the specific risks considered by the Rules • Complete Scope to the extent needed • Provides a basis for rating or acceptance • Current

  7. New standards needed • Standard providing correlation between gas concentrations and hazardous areas as per IEC 60092-502 (1999) • Procedures for sampling and measuring of gas on board ships • Standard for design and fabricating of standard parts and fittings associated with loading arms. See EN 1474-2 and EN- ISO 28460 • Annex A.2 of COMMISSION DIRECTIVE 2013/52/EU of 30 October 2013 amending Council Directive 96/98/EC on marine equipment

  8. New standards needed Equipment in cryogenic service required by the Rules • Valves in cryogenic service (5C-8-4/3.2.1) • LNG cargo pumps (5C-8-5/3.2.3) • NG compressors • LNG cargo hoses • LNG safety relief valves • Flame screens on LNG vents (5C-8-17/10) • Flanges in cryogenic service ((5C-8-5/2.4.5) • Portable ventilation equipment (5C-8-11/2)
