These Guidance Notes are applicable to fixed and floating offshore structures as well as drilling units (without any geographical limitations) including topside installations. These Guidance Notes are not applicable to E&I components already covered by Class Rules. The recommendations in these Guidance Notes do not override any Rules or statutory requirements that may exist.
