This CP gives a description of the procedures and requirements related to documentation, design and type testing applicable for TA of pourable compounds for foundation chocking.
This CP does not set the design requirements to the pourable compounds for foundation chocking. TA is based on compliance with design requirements given in the rules and/or other regulations and standards. The CP describes how to document compliance with the requirements in order to obtain a TA certificate for the equipment. This includes, where relevant, technical requirements for how the type tests shall be performed.
The type approval certificate for a pourable compound for foundation chocking will be valid for one grade of the actual product with the possibility to include variants.
For pourable compounds for foundation chocking this means:
grade: one base resin
variants: different additives such as accelerators and thixotropic agents to modify the resin properties.
The type approval certificate is normally limited to one manufacturer at one production site, however, other arrangements may be agreed upon with the Society.
Type tests as specified in Sec.2 , shall be carried out and verified in one of the following ways:
at a DNV GL laboratory
at an accredited and independent laboratory accepted by the Society
at the manufacturer's premises in the presence of a surveyor.
