Comprehensive Stand-Alone Naval Ship Rules


Comprehensive Stand-Alone Naval Ship Rules

LR's latest Naval Ship Technical Committee (NSTC) considered proposals for amendments to LR's Rules and Regulations for the Classification of Naval Ships. The high-level panel agreed to give full approval for LR's naval machinery and electrical systems Rules - beyond the provisional status, that was awarded in 1999. The approval of these Rules, together with the Rules for hull structure which were adopted in full in 1999, means that LR's Rules and Regulations for the Classification of Naval Ships now forms a unique complete stand-alone package.

Since the publication of LR's Provisional Rules for the Classification of Naval Ships in July 1999, LR has undertaken considerable development work with the very active support of the naval ship construction and equipment industry and Navies. The major effort involving focus groups drawing on specialist technical expertise culminated in the proposal for a major amendment to the Rules for machinery and electrical systems.

The NSTC also discussed a number of related subjects including:
  • the application of Military Distinction notations
  • the development of Rules to cover the elements that would be dealt with by International Conventions for merchant ships
  • the concept of crack management for the hull structure
  • future development of the Rules.
  • Comprehensive, fully approved sets of Rules for the Classification of Naval Ships covering hull, machinery and electrical aspects will be published in January 2001. LR's development in this area has clearly been a success -naval ships, including front line ships, have now been surveyed for entry into class in UK and Australia and future designs are being procured with classification.
