The present Recommendations were developed by Russian Register and approved in accordance with current provisions and come into force since the date of publication. The Methodological Recommendations are based on the review of ISO, GOST and industry standards for fuel, lube oil and oily water analyses of particular types to ensure the compliance of testing laboratories recognized by the Register with the requirements of Annex VI to the MARPOL 73/78 Convention, IМО Resolutions MEPC.96(47), MEPC.107(49) and МЕРС.60(ЗЗ) (whichever is applicable) and other documents relating to environment pollution prevention, as well as with the requirements of the IACS, Russian Maritime Register of Shipping and industry standards for assessment of technical condition of items to be sun-eyed, regarding compliance and submission. The Methodological Recommendations contain a large database of information on the international and national quality control standards for ship working media which permits testing laboratories rendering services for sea transport to establish a flexible system of normative documents concerning provision of quality control of ship oil products and oily waters. The information database contains standards for products to be tested, as well as for relevant testing methods including alternative ones, thus enabling not only testing and measuring equipment manufactured lately to be used, but also that traditionally applied by the thermotechnical laboratories of shipping companies in the past, with their gradual replacement by more advanced ones. The Methodological Recommendations are intended for testing laboratories, cargo owners, shipowners and surveyors.
