  1. Notice No.1 Rules and Regulations for the Construction and Classification of Ships for the Carriage of Liquid Chemicals in Bulk, July 2022

Contents

The Rules and Regulations for the Construction and Classification of Ships for the Carriage of Liquid Chemicals in Bulk have been prepared to ensure that Bulk Chemical Tankers built with a view to classification with Lloyd's Register (LR), will also comply with the requirements of the International Code for the Construction and Equipment of Ships Carrying Dangerous Chemicals in Bulk (IBC Code).

The IBC Code contains requirements for ship survival capability, fire protection and fire extinction, personnel protection, and operational matters which are not within the scope of classification as defined in the Rules for Ships, and LR does not require these to be investigated for the purpose of classification. However, these matters are the responsibility of the National Authority or Administration responsible for issuing the International Certificate of Fitness.
