|Publication Date:||18 May 2020|
PURPOSE AND SCOPE.
The purpose of UFC 4-213-10 is to provide a uniform guidance for the planning, design, construction, renovation and maintenance of graving dry docks. This document has undergone many iterations over the decades. Much of the specific recommendations have been lifted from existing facility designs that have proven valuable.
Any dry dock construction or other work must be performed in concert with the NAVSEA Dry Dock Certification program, namely the requirements of MIL-STD-1625 and Naval Ship's Technical Manual (NSTM), Chapter 997, must be met.
