In-service Offshore Container Inspection Procedures

Setting a higher safety standard.

Offshore platform and service boats

While the regulation for certifying new-build offshore containers is clear, in-service inspection procedures are not.

Offshore containers require inspections at one-year and four-year intervals to make sure they're still safe to use.

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)
  • Reporting
