Tanker Specification Awareness Guide now available

As part of its ongoing efforts to promote safer tanker shipping, the INTERTANKO Safety, Technical and Environmental Committee (ISTEC) has produced this Awareness Guide covering the technical specifications of tankers by drawing on the membership's knowledge, experience and their willingness to share information for their mutual benefit and for the tanker industry as a whole.

The main aim is to provide assistance in the process of investigating, evaluating and making informed choices, and thus reinforcing final decisions, during the negotiation of a newbuilding contract with a shipyard. The Guide can serve not only as a compendium of other companies’ experiences but also as a checklist of items to follow up and points to further investigate and develop. It is not the intention of this Awareness Guide to rewrite the rules of the classification societies but rather to work within the existing regime to provide the industry with the means of constructing tankers to a higher standard than is currently the common practice.
