Statutory Alert: Revision to IACS Procedural Requirement No. 37: Confined Space Safe Entry
Applicability: All shipyards, shipowners and operators


Following on from Class News 22/2013, IACS have issued a revision to the procedural requirements for confined space safe entry to include a clause which allows surveyors to enter a confined space if a toxic product is contained in an adjacent space, provided the following has been carried out:

  • A risk assessment has been completed to the vessel’s management company and the risk is mitigated.
  • All identified controls are confirmed in place prior to tank entry.

The revision will be applied from 1 January 2015.
