Classification society ClassNK has announced that it released amendments to its Rules and Guidance for the Survey and Construction of Steel Ships on 25 October 2018.

ClassNK says that it constantly revises its Rules and Guidance in order to reflect the latest results from relevant research and development projects, feedback from damage investigations, requests from industry as well as changes made to relevant international conventions, IACS unified requirements (UR), national regulations, etc.

As an example of the amendments, taking into consideration that in recent years, as plans for constructing diverse 'wind turbine installation ships' used for installing wind turbines have been surfacing, relative provisions need to be clarified regarding their application to such ships.

The PDF files of ClassNK Rules and Guidance are available free of charge via for those who have registered for the ClassNK ‘My Page’ service.
