|Publication Date:||1 July 2021|
Scope of application
These rules apply to monohull ships constructed of welded steel structures and composed of stiffened plate panels. Application of these rules will be specially considered for ships with different hull arrangement, stiffening arrangement or with hull constructed in other material than steel.
For ships with class notation CSR, separate requirements replace Ch.1 to Ch.13, except for certification requirements given in Sec.3  and documentation requirements for items given in Sec.3 [2.2] not specified in CSR. Ch.14 and Ch.15 also apply to ships with class notation CSR.
Application of the rules to innovative designs shall be decided based on consideration of the technical background of the different requirements. Increased scope of analysis beyond what is defined in these rules may be required to ensure equivalent safety.
