Foreword
This Guide contains the technical requirements and criteria employed by ABS to consider alternateSurvey arrangements using Risk-Based Inspection (RBI) approaches for offshore installations. It isapplicable to static pressure retaining equipment, and structures for offshore floating and fixed-base platforms.ABS supports the implementation and use of RBI technologies as a means for optimizing inspectionresources, while maintaining or perhaps lowering levels of risk. ABS recognizes the benefits that RBIcan bring to an asset and makes provision within its rules for classification of assets, accordingly, thusallowing RBI to be utilized as an alternative for the Owner to maintain ABS classification for theasset. This Guide has been written for worldwide application and, as such, installation specific data,analyses and plans are generally required to demonstrate the adequacy of the RBI plan. It is not theintention of this Guide to impose requirements or practices in addition to those that have previously proven satisfactory in similar situations. This ABS Guide does not inhibit the use of any technologicalapproach that can be shown to produce an acceptable service performance during the life of thestructure with the risks understood and appropriately controlled.The application of this Guide does not cover any statutory survey requirements that may apply to theinstallation being considered (e.g., MODU code, SOLAS, MARPOL, coastal state regulations, etc.).Although ABS is authorized to perform statutory surveys on behalf of some authorities, ABS is not ina position to alter or waive them. The cognizant administration or regulatory body is the finaldetermining body for statutory or regulatory requirements under their jurisdiction. The Owner shallensure that in developing the RBI plan, due consideration is given to Coastal and Flag Staterequirements.
