Classification Society RINA has issued amendments to “RINA Rules for Classification of Ships”. The amendments are extensive and include changes to parts A, B, C, D, E and F.
Most of the changes are introduced due to amendments and/or revisions of IACS Unified Requirements (UR), such as the change to Chapter 1 of Part A to introduce IACS UR M74 (Rev 2 - Jun 2021) “Ballast Water Management Systems” and to Chapter 4 to introduce IACS UR Z16 (Rev.4 Corr.1 May 2022) “Periodical surveys of cargo installations on ships carrying liquefied gases in bulk”. Chapter 9 of Part B was amended to introduce IACS UR L4 (Rev 3, Corr 2) "Closure of Chain Lockers".
