The Rules and Regulations for the Classification of Ships using Gases or other Low-flashpoint Fuels have been prepared to ensure that ships using gases or other low-flashpoint fuels built with a view to classification with LR will also comply with the requirements of the IMO International Code of Safety for Ships Using Gases or Other Low-Flashpoint Fuels (IGF Code).
The IGF Code also contains requirements for operational matters which are not within the scope of classification as defined in the Rules and Regulations for the Classification of Ships. Such matters are the responsibility of the National Authority or Administration.
The Appendices in these Rules include:
- Requirements for Ships Using Methyl Alcohol (Methanol) or Ethyl Alcohol
