The present China Classification Society's Guidelines were developed to apply to tankers carrying flammable liquid cargoes in bulk. The document is to be used by the designers, ship constructors and class surveyors of tankers for reference; it shall be noted as necessary that these Guidelines do not the relevant requirements of CCS Rules as well as of the IEC publications that are in force. The term "flammable" used throughout the present Guidelines includes hazard results that are determined by the flash- and boiling point, flammability and spontaneous ignition temperature of the transported cargo, and hazard results from the cargo reacting with other materials. The document has been divided into six major parts. The first is providing some general info together with the definitions used and list of documentation; the second part addresses the area classification, following two parts are dedicated to the shipboard electrical systems and electrical equipment. The last two parts of the publication cover the installation aspects (such as proper selection and correct installation of the electrical cables, their connection and joints), and inspection and maintenance issues.
