Offshore containers require inspections at one-year and four-year intervals to make sure they're still safe to use.
While the regulation for certifying new-build offshore containers is clear, in-service inspection procedures are not.
In the interest of a safer industry, Lloyd's Register has developed robust in-service inspection procedures for offshore containers. Through the release of these procedures, we continue our 254-year-mission to make society safer through the advancement of rules, standards, research, and technology.
These procedures address:
- Intermediate inspections
- Periodic inspections
- Frame inspection procedures
- Maximum acceptable deformations
- Container in-service inspection criteria
- Sling sets (wire rope and chain rope)
