RULES FOR BUILDING AND CLASSING OFFSHORE SUPPORT VESSELS 2015
|Publication Date:||1 January 2015|
For the 2008 edition, Part 1, "Conditions of Classification" was consolidated into a generic booklet, entitled Rules for Conditions of Classification (Part 1) for all vessels other than those in offshore service. The purpose of that consolidation was to emphasize the common applicability of the classification requirements in "Part 1" to ABS-classed vessels, other marine structures and their associated machinery, and thereby make "Conditions of Classification" more readily a common Rule of the various ABS Rules and Guides, as appropriate.
Thus, this supplement specifies only the unique requirements applicable to offshore support vessels. This supplement is always to be used with the aforementioned Rules for Conditions of Classification (Part 1).
