Lloyd's Register Approves Rule Changes

by Robert Lee,, London

13 November 2009

At a meeting of Lloyd's Register's Technical Committee, convened on November 2 and 3, 2009 a total of 33 Rule amendment proposals for hull and engineering systems were discussed and approved by members.

The meeting, held at Devonport House in Greenwich, London, also discussed how Lloyd's Register should develop future Rules to meet the challenge of environmental impact, and mutual recognition of class certificates in relation to the recent EU Regulation covering recognised organisations.

The Rule amendments under discussion were as a result of industry feedback, responses from external regional and country advisory technical committees, as well as changes to maritime legislation, input from research and development and the introduction of new unified requirements from the International Association of Classification Societies.

Vaughan Pomeroy, Lloyd's Register's Technical Director, said: "These meetings are an important part of the governance of Lloyd's Register. They also provide a very effective way of discussing current issues with a cross-section of the marine industry. The members make a major contribution to our work and help us to define future directions."

The meeting also heard and discussed presentations on "safe return to port," the Hong Kong convention on ship recycling, challenges to classification posed by new power and propulsion technology, and minimum power requirements for ships. There was also a lengthy discussion on the presentation concerning Lloyd's Register's research activities into the future of shipping in a climate conscious world.
