1.
Scope
It is intended that these standards provide guidance where established and recognized shipbuilding or national
standards accepted by the Classification Society do not exist.
1.1
This standard provides guidance on shipbuilding quality standards for the hull structure during new
construction and the remedial standard where the quality standard is not met.
Whereas the standard generally applies to
- conventional merchant ship types,
- parts of hull covered by the rules of the Classification Society,
- hull structures constructed from normal and higher strength hull structural steel,
the applicability of the standard is in each case to be agreed upon by the Classification Society.
The standard does generally not apply to the new construction of
- special types of ships as e.g. gas tankers
- structures fabricated from stainless steel or other, special types or grades of steel
1.2
In this standard, both a "Standard" range and a "Limit" range are listed. The "Standard" range represents
the target range expected to be met in regular work under normal circumstances. The "Limit" range represents the
maximum allowable deviation from the "Standard" range. Work beyond the "Standard" range but within the
"Limit" range is acceptable. In cases where no ‘limit’ value is specified, the value beyond the ‘standard’ range
may be accepted subject to the consideration of the Classification Society.
1.3
The standard covers typical construction methods and gives guidance on quality standards for the most
important aspects of such construction. Unless explicitly stated elsewhere in the standard, the level of
workmanship reflected herein will in principle be acceptable for primary and secondary structure of conventional
designs. A more stringent standard may however be required for critical and highly stressed areas of the hull, and
this is to be agreed with the Classification Society in each case. In assessing the criticality of hull structure and
structural components, reference is made to ref. 1, 2 and 3.
1.4
Details relevant to structures or fabrication procedures not covered by this standard are to be approved by
the Classification Society on the basis of procedure qualifications and/or recognized national standards.
1.5
For use of this standard, fabrication fit-ups, deflections and similar quality attributes are intended to be
uniformly distributed about the nominal values. The shipyard is to take corrective action to improve work
processes that produce measurements where a skew distribution is evident. Relying upon remedial steps that
truncate a skewed distribution of the quality attribute is unacceptable.
2.
General requirements for new construction
2.1
In general, the work is to be carried out in accordance with the Classification Society rules and under the
supervision of the Surveyor to the Classification Society
2.2
Welding operations are to be carried out in accordance with work instructions accepted by the
Classification Society.
2.3
Welding of hull structures is to be carried out by qualified welders, according to approved and qualified
welding procedures and with welding consumables approved by the Classification Society, see Section 3. Welding
operations are to be carried out under proper supervision by the shipbuilder. The working conditions for welding
are to be monitored by the Classification Society in accordance with UR Z23.
3.
Qualification of personnel and procedures
3.1
Qualification of welders
3.1.1 Welders are to be qualified in accordance with the procedures of the Classification Society or to a
recognized national or international standard. Recognition of other standards is subject to submission to the
-3-
Classification Society for evaluation. Subcontractors are to keep records of welders qualification and, when
required, furnish valid approval test certificates.
3.1.2 Welding operators using fully mechanized or fully automatic processes need generally not pass approval
testing provided that the production welds made by the operators are of the required quality. However, operators
are to receive adequate training in setting or programming and operating the equipment. Records of training and
operation experience shall be maintained on individual operator’s files and records, and be made available to the
Classification Society for inspection when requested.
3.2
Qualification of welding procedures
Welding procedures are to be qualified in accordance with URW28 or other recognized standard accepted by the
Classification Society.
3.3
Qualification of NDE operators
Personnel performing non-destructive examination for the purpose of assessing quality of welds in connection
with new construction covered by this standard, are to be qualified in accordance with Classification Society rules
or to a recognized international or national qualification scheme. Records of operators and their current
certificates are to be kept and made available to the Surveyor for inspection.
4.
Materials
4.1
Materials for Structural Members
All materials, including weld consumables, to be used for the structural members are to be approved by the
Classification Society as per the approved construction drawings and meet the respective IACS Unified
Requirements. Additional recommendations are contained in the following paragraphs.
All materials used should be manufactured at a works approved by the Classification Society for the type and
grade supplied.

Imperfection surface area Ratio(%)
Table 1 Limits for depth of minor imperfection, for acceptance without remedies
-4-
Imperfection surface area Ratio (%) is obtained as influenced area / area under consideration (i.e. plate surface
area) x 100%.
For isolated surface discontinuities, influenced area is obtained by drawing a continuous line which follows the
circumference of the discontinuity at a distance of 20 mm. (Figure 1)
For surface discontinuities appearing in a cluster, influenced area is obtained by drawing a continuous line which
follows the circumference of the cluster at a distance of 20 mm. (Figure 2)

Remedial of Defects
Defects are to be remedied by grinding and/or welding in accordance with IACS Rec.12.
4.2.4
4.2.4.1
Further Defects
Lamination
Investigation to be carried out at the steelmill into the cause and extent of the detected laminations. Severe
lamination is to be remedied by local insert plates. The minimum breadth or length of the plate to be replaced is to
be:
• 1600 mm for shell and strength deck plating in way of cruciform or T-joints,
• 800 mm for shell, strength deck plating and other primary members,
• 300 mm for other structural members.
Local limited lamination may be remedied by chipping and/or grinding followed by welding in accordance with
sketch (a). In case where the local limited lamination is near the plate surface, the remedial may be carried out as
shown in sketch (b). For limitations see paragraph 4.2.2.
4.2.4.2
Weld Spatters
Loose weld spatters are to be removed by grinding or other measures to clean metal surface (see Table 9.13), as
required by the paint system, on:
• shell plating
• deck plating on exposed decks

Notes:
1. For CSR Bulk Carriers built under the “Common Structural Rules for Bulk Carriers” with the effective dates of 1
July 2010 and 1 July 2012, the standard is R≥2t mm.
2. For CSR ships, the allowable inside bending radius of cold formed plating may be reduced provided the following
requirements are complied with.
- 10 -
When the inside bending radius is reduced below 4.5 times the as-built plate thickness, supporting data is to be
provided. The bending radius is in no case to be less than 2 times the as-built plate thickness. As a minimum, the
following additional requirements are to be complied with:
a) For all bent plates:
• 100% visual inspection of the bent area is to be carried out.
• Random checks by magnetic particle testing are to be carried out.
b) In addition to a), for corrugated bulkheads subject to lateral liquid pressure:
• The steel is to be of Grade D/DH or higher.
The material is impact tested in the strain-aged condition and satisfies the requirements stated herein. The deformation
is to be equal to the maximum deformation to be applied during production, calculated by the formula t as-built /(2r bdg +
t as-built ), where t as-built is the as-built thickness of the plate material and r bdg is the bending radius. One sample is to be
plastically strained at the calculated deformation or 5%, whichever is greater and then artificially aged at 250°C for one
hour then subject to Charpy V-notch testing. The average impact energy after strain ageing is to meet the impact
requirements specified for the grade of steel used.

Scope
1.1 This standard provides guidance on quality of repair of hull structures. The standard
covers permanent repairs of existing ships.
Whereas the standard generally applies to
-
conventional ship types,
-
parts of hull covered by the rules of the Classification Society,
-
hull structures constructed from normal and higher strength hull structural steel, the
applicability of the standard is in each case to be agreed upon by the Classification
Society.
The standard does generally not apply to repair of
-
special types of ships as e.g. gas tankers
-
structures fabricated from stainless steel or other, special types or grades of steel
1.2 The standard covers typical repair methods and gives guidance on quality standard on
the most important aspects of such repairs. Unless explicitly stated elsewhere in the
standard, the level of workmanship reflected herein will in principle be acceptable for primary
and secondary structure of conventional design. A more stringent standard may however be
required for critical and highly stressed areas of the hull, and is to be agreed with the
Classification Society in each case. In assessing the criticality of hull structure and structural
components, reference is made to ref. 1, 2 and 3.
1.3 Restoration of structure to the original standard may not constitute durable repairs of
damages originating from insufficient strength or inadequate detail design. In such cases
strengthening or improvements beyond the original design may be required. Such
improvements are not covered by this standard, however it is referred to ref. 1, 2 and 3.

General requirements for repairs and repairers
2.1 In general, when hull structure covered by classification is to be subjected to repairs, the
work is to be carried out under the supervision of the Surveyor to the Classification Society.
Such repairs are to be agreed prior to commencement of the work.
2.2 Repairs are to be carried out by workshops, repair yards or personnel who have
demonstrated their capability to carry out hull repairs of adequate quality in accordance with
the Classification Society’s requirements and this standard.
2.3 Repairs are to be carried out under working conditions that facilitate sound repairs.
Provisions are to be made for proper accessibility, staging, lighting and ventilation. Welding
operations are to be carried out under shelter from rain, snow and wind.
2.4 Welding of hull structures is to be carried out by qualified welders, according to approved
and qualified welding procedures and with welding consumables approved by the
Classification Society, see Section 3. Welding operations are to be carried out under proper
supervision of the repair yard.
2.5 Where repairs to hull which affect or may affect classification are intended to be carried
out during a voyage, complete repair procedure including the extent and sequence of repair is
to be submitted to and agreed upon by the Surveyor to the Classification Society reasonably
in advance of the repairs. See Ref. 8.

Qualification of personnel
3.1
Qualification of welders
3.1.1 Welders are to be qualified in accordance with the procedures of the Classification
Society or to a recognised national or international standard, e.g. EN 287, ISO 9606, ASME
Section IX, ANSI/AWS D1.1. Recognition of other standards is subject to submission to the
Classification Society for evaluation. Repair yards and workshops are to keep records of
welders qualification and, when required, furnish valid approval test certificates.
3.1.2 Welding operators using fully mechanised of fully automatic processes need generally
not pass approval testing, provided that production welds made by the operators are of the
required quality. However, operators are to receive adequate training in setting or
programming and operating the equipment. Records of training and production test results
shall be maintained on individual operator’s files and records, and be made available to the
Classification Society for inspection when requested.
3.2
Qualification of welding procedures
Welding procedures are to be qualified in accordance with the procedures of the
Classification Society or a recognised national or international standard, e.g. EN288, ISO
9956, ASME Section IX, ANSI/AWS D1.1. Recognition of other standards is subject to
submission to the Classification Society for evaluation. The welding procedure should be
supported by a welding procedure qualification record. The specification is to include the
welding process, types of electrodes, weld shape, edge preparation, welding techniques and
positions.
3.3
Qualification of NDE operators
3.3.1 Personnel performing non destructive examination for the purpose of assessing quality
of welds in connection with repairs covered by this standard, are to be qualified in accordance
with the Classification Society rules or to a recognised international or national qualification
scheme. Records of operators and their current certificates are to be kept and made available
to the Surveyor for inspection.

Materials
4.1
General requirements for materials
4.1.1 The requirements for materials used in repairs are in general the same as the
requirements for materials specified in the Classification Society’s rules for new
constructions, (ref. 5).
4.1.2 Replacement material is in general to be of the same grade as the original approved
material. Alternatively, material grades complying with recognised national or international
standards may be accepted by the Classification Societies provided such standards give
equivalence to the requirements of the original grade or are agreed by the Classification
Society. For assessment of equivalency between steel grades, the general requirements and
guidelines in Section 4.2 apply.
4.1.3 Higher tensile steel is not to be replaced by steel of a lesser strength unless specially
approved by the Classification Society.
4.1.4 Normal and higher strength hull structural steels are to be manufactured at works
approved by the Classification Society for the type and grade being supplied.
4.1.5 Materials used in repairs are to be certified by the Classification Society applying the
procedures and requirements in the rules for new constructions. In special cases, and
normally limited to small quantities, materials may be accepted on the basis of alternative
procedures for verification of the material’s properties. Such procedures are subject to
agreement by the Classification Society in each separate case.
4.2
Equivalency of material grades
4.2.1 Assessment of equivalency between material grades should at least include the
following aspects;
-
heat treatment/delivery condition
-
chemical composition
-
mechanical properties
-
tolerances
4.2.2 When assessing the equivalence between grades of normal or higher strength hull
structural steels up to and including grade E40 in thickness limited to 50 mm, the general
requirements in Table 4.1 apply.
4.2.3 Guidance on selection of steel grades to certain recognised standards equivalent to hull
structural steel grades specified in Classification Societies’ rules is given in Table 4.2

General requirements to welding
5.1
Correlation of welding consumables with hull structural steels
5.1.1 For the different hull structural steel grades welding consumables are to be selected in
accordance with IACS UR W17 (see Ref.6).
5.2
General requirements to preheating and drying out
5.2.1 The need for preheating is to be determined based on the chemical composition of the
materials, welding process and procedure and degree of joint restraint.
5.2.2 A minimum preheat of 50o C is to be applied when ambient temperature is below 0° C.
Dryness of the welding zone is in all cases to be ensured.
5.2.3 Guidance on recommended minimum preheating temperature for higher strength steel
is given in Table 5.1. For automatic welding processes utilising higher heat input e.g.
submerged arc welding, the temperatures may be reduced by 50o C. For re-welding or repair
of welds, the stipulated values are to be increased by 25o C.

Dry welding on hull plating below the waterline of vessels afloat
5.3.1 Welding on hull plating below the waterline of vessels afloat is acceptable only on
normal and higher strength steels with specified yield strength not exceeding 355 MPa and
only for local repairs. Welding involving other high strength steels or more extensive repairs
against water backing is subject to special consideration and approval by the Classification
Society of the welding procedure.
5.3.2 Low-hydrogen electrodes or welding processes are to be used when welding on hull
plating against water backing. Coated low-hydrogen electrodes used for manual metal arc
welding should be properly conditioned to ensure a minimum of moisture content.
5.3.3 In order to ensure dryness and to reduce the cooling rate, the structure is to be
preheated by a torch or similar prior to welding, to a temperature of minimum 5o C or as
specified in the welding procedure.

Application of Doubling Straps
In certain instances, doubling straps are used as a means to strengthen and reinforce primary
structure. Where this has been agreed and approved, particular attention should be paid to:
the end termination points of the straps, so that toe support is such that no isolated hard
point occurs.
in the case of application of symmetrical or asymmetrical-ended straps, the corners at
the end of the tapering should be properly rounded.
any butts between lengths of doubling straps, so that there is adequate separation of
the butt weld from the primary structure below during welding, and so that a high quality
root run under controlled circumstances is completed prior to completing the remainder
of the weld. Ultrasonic testing should be carried out on completion to verify full
penetration.
