We are now presenting are all eleven parts forming the latest officially released "Rules and Regulations for the Classification of Offshore Units" developed by Lloyd's Register professionals. The reader may find a comprehensive listing of contents at the beginning of each of the parts. In this release all editorial amendments were incorporated. As mentioned above, the Rulebook consists of eleven parts. The first part is pretty introductory and contains general regulations. In the second part the authors address the rules to be followed during the manufacture, certification and testing of materials. The functional offshore unit types and their special features have been dealt with in the third part of the publication. The other parts have been dedicated to the steel unit offshore structures, machinery of the offshore units (both main and auxiliary), electrical and control engineering, safety systems, corrosion control matters, delineated hazardous areas and fire, offshore structures constructed of concrete, descriptions of the various ship type units and, finally, production, offloading and storage of liquefied gases in bulk. The publication will definitely be useful and practical for all offshore industry members since it provides necessary technical information and applicable requirements to the offshore units that shall be followed in order to ensure their safe and efficient operation and maintenance.
