Each individual Classification Society has adopted their own rules for the machinery and equipment on tankers for classification purposes. In addition, Classification Societies, acting on behalf of a Flag State, approve certain machinery and equipment installed on tankers in accordance with the requirements of SOLAS. These rules are developed and approved for implementation through each Classification Society’s technical committee. It is important to INTERTANKO Members that the INTERTANKO Secretariat and/or Members are in involved in these committees to ensure that any classification standards for machinery and equipment applicable to tankers are consistent with Members’ interests, are fit for purpose and are not overly burdensome.
