Introduction

The year 2020 edition of the Guide for Building and Classing International Naval Ships consists of the Parts shown in Table 1. Content has been added as necessary to extend its applicability to military vessels and other Government owned vessels in non-commercial service. The following is provided for information regarding each Part:

a) Part 1: The purpose of the generic title ABS Rules for Conditions of Classification (Part 1) is to reflect the expanded contents of PART 1, as a result of including consolidated requirements for "Classification" applicable to all types of and sizes of vessels, barges and specific shipboard arrangements/systems, etc., except for those in offshore service, as specified in the Foreword to Part 1.

b) Part 2: The purpose of the generic title ABS Rules for Materials and Welding (Part 2) is to reflect the common applicability of the requirements to all ABS-classed vessels, other marine structures and their associated machinery, and thereby make PART 2 more readily a common "PART" of various ABS Rules and Guides, as appropriate.

c) Part 3: The ABS Guide for Building and Classing International Naval Ships (Part 3) is based upon other existing ABS Rules and Guides to inherently incorporate baseline standards for hull design, construction, safety and environmental protection expected of all commercial vessels worldwide.

d) Part 4: The ABS Guide for Building and Classing International Naval Ships (Part 4) is based upon other existing ABS Rules and Guides to inherently incorporate baseline standards for machinery design, construction, safety and environmental protection expected of all commercial vessels worldwide.

e) Part 5: The ABS Rules for Building and Classing Marine Vessels (Part 5A, 5B, 5C) contains structural requirements for specific vessel types (tankers, bulk carriers, container carriers, liquefied gas carriers, passenger carriers, chemical carriers, and vessels intended to carry vehicles) that are normally classed in accordance with ABS Rules for Building and Classing Marine Vessels. The inclusion of this existing Part 5 in the ABS Guide for Building and Classing International Naval Ships is mainly for its potential application to certain naval ships (e.g., Oilers) and will require special consideration when applying its requirements since they were intended for application to commercial vessels and are therefore based heavily upon SOLAS and other IMO Convention standards; no modifications have been made to it at this time to tailor its applicability to military vessels or other Government-owned vessels in non-commercial service.

f) Part 6: The ABS Guide for Building and Classing International Naval Ships (Part 6) provides requirements regarding those optional notations offered by ABS that are most frequently requested and/or considered to be most applicable or unique to military vessels and other Government owned vessels in non-commercial service. A complete listing of available optional notations is on the ABS website (www.eagle.org). The requirements in Part 6 apply in addition to the basic requirements for Classification, but only apply for those optional notations that are requested.

g) Part 7: The purpose of the generic title ABS Rules for Survey After Construction (Part 7) is to reflect the common applicability of survey requirements to all ABS-classed vessels, other marine structures and their associated machinery.

The primary changes from the 2019 Rules are identified and listed in Table 3. The effective date of the indicated Rule Changes is 1 January 2020, unless specifically indicated otherwise.

This Guide becomes effective on 1 January 2020.

The listing of CLASSIFICATION SYMBOLS AND NOTATIONS is available from the ABS website

In association with the harmonization of the Common Structural Rules (CSR) for Bulk Carriers and Oil Tankers, on 1 July 2015, the three Sub-parts, 5A, 5B, and 5C, of Part 5 of the Rules for Building and Classing Marine Vessels are as follows:

Contents

Part 5A:

General Hull Requirements (IACS CSR Part 1)

Part 5B:

Ship Types (IACS CSR Part 2)

Part 5C:

This Part is divided into two separate booklets as follows:

Chapters 1 to 6:

Tankers and Bulk Carriers not covered by Part 5A and Part 5B and Container Carriers

Chapters 7 to 18:

Passenger Vessels, Liquefied Gas Carriers, Chemical Carriers, Vessels Intended to Carry Vehicles, Water Carriers, Membrane Tank LNG Carriers, Vessels Using Gases or other Low-Flashpoint Fuels, Fire Fighting Vessels, Oil Recovery Vessels, Escort Vessels, Vessels Under 90 m (295 ft) Intended for Towing, and Fishing Vessels.

Part 5D:

Offshore Support Vessels for Specialized Services

Application - Oil Tankers

The structural requirements in Part 5A, Pt 1 and Part 5B, Pt 2, Ch 2 of the Rules are applicable for double hull oil tankers of 150 m in length and upward, with structural arrangements as specified in Part 5A, Pt 1, Ch 1, Sec 1, [1.3].

For oil tankers with structural arrangements not covered by Part 5A, Pt 1 and Part 5B, Pt 2, Ch 2, the requirements in Part 5C, Chapters 1 or 2, are to be complied with.

Application - Bulk Carriers

The structural requirements in Part 5A, Pt 1 and Part 5B, Pt 2, Ch 1 of the Rules are applicable for single side skin and double side skin bulk carriers of 90m in length and upward, with structural arrangements as specified in Part 5A, Pt 1, Ch 1, Sec 1, [1.2].

For vessels intended to carry ore or bulk cargoes, other than the single side skin or double side skin bulk carriers of 90 m in length and upward with structural arrangements as specified in Part 5A, Pt 1 and Part 5B, Pt 2, Ch 1, the requirements in Part 5C, Chapters 3 or 4 are to be complied with.

Application - ABS Construction Monitoring Program

These compulsory requirements for CSR notation are specified in Part 5C, Appendix 2.

Application - Onboard Systems for Oil Tankers and Bulk Carriers

The onboard systems for all tankers are to comply with the requirements of Part 5C, Chapter 1, Section 7, and for all bulk carriers are to comply with the requirements of Part 5C, Chapter 3, Section 7 of the Rules.

Application - References

Other Parts of the ABS Rules that are referenced within Part 5A, 5B, 5C, and 5D are also to be applied.
