SuAc 4.1: Provisions for harmonised European regulations

The objective of this sub-activity is to deliver input for relevant regulatory bodies such as European Commission, CCNR, UN/ECE and national authorities addressing the technical, operational and safety aspects related to the transportation of LNG, to the use of LNG as fuel as well as to storage and handling operations with LNG. In order to define the workload of this sub-activity and the procedures for the integration of the work into the forthcoming regulatory processes, two meetings with CCNR, national authorities and industry representatives were organised at the beginning of 2013. It was decided that the LNG Masterplan shall address the areas of vessel specifications, the transport of LNG as dangerous cargo, the bunkering of LNG, police regulations, port regulations as well as the education & training of involved personal.
