Scope and application
This programme is applicable for the approval of workshops/plants of:
as referred in the Society's rules and standards. For a description of general requirements, conditions and procedures related to the approval, please refer to DNVGL CP 0346 which shall be applied in combination with this programme.
The product(s) used for approval testing (see Sec.3) will place limitations on the range of approval. The approval will be limited to each of the plate grades and types given in the RU SHIP Pt.2 Ch.2. However, test data supplied for grades with higher strength and impact toughness requirements may cover approval of grades with lower strength and toughness requirements (see App.A). Approval is furthermore limited a maximum coil mass, maximum thickness of uncoiled plate and to specified heat treatment/delivery condition.
In the absence of relevant DNVGL rules, and subject to case by case evaluation, approval may be given for the manufacture of decoiled products of grades not covered by the rules, i.e. materials specified in recognised national or international standards.
