This standard has been based on international accepted principal requirements, defined in the references as listed in Table 2 . In cases where these a) contain only functional requirements, b) allow alternative solutions to prescriptive requirements or c) are generally or vaguely worded, a DNV interpretation has been added.
The interpretations are not aiming at introducing additional requirements but at achieving uniform application of the principal requirements. The interpretations can be regarded as norms for fulfilling the principle requirements.
The interpretations do not preclude the use of other alternative solutions. Such solutions shall be documented and approved for compliance to the principal requirement equivalent to the original interpretation.
For use of this standard as technical basis for offshore classification as well as description of principles, procedures, and applicable class notations related to classification services, see Ch.3.
