310 - 06/03 - New requirements for oil fuel piping - SOLAS

As of 1st July 2003 all ships constructed before 1st July 1998 must comply with regulation II-2/15.2.11 of SOLAS.

This requirement has been in force for new buildings since 1st July 1998 and states that all oil fuel piping shall be screened or otherwise suitably protected to avoid, as far as practicable, oil spray or oil leakages onto hot surfaces or into machinery intakes.

We advise all Members to ensure that their operational and chartering departments are aware of this and have read Msc/Circ.1083, unified interpretation of SOLAS regulation II0-2/15.2.11.
