ARTICLE 1
1.1. - BUREAU VERITAS is a Society the purpose of whose Marine Division (the "Society") is the classification (" Classification ") of any ship or vessel or structure of any type or part of it or system therein collectively hereinafter referred to as a "Unit" whether linked to shore, river bed or sea bed or not, whether
operated or located at sea or in inland waters or partly on land, including submarines, hovercrafts, drilling
rigs, offshore installations of any type and of any purpose, their related and ancillary equipment, subsea
or not, such as well head and pipelines, mooring legs and mooring points or otherwise as decided by the
Society.
The Society:
• prepares and publishes Rules for classification, Guidance Notes and other documents (“Rules”);
• issues Certificates, Attestations and Reports following its interventions (“Certificates”);
• publishes Registers.
1.2. - The Society also participates in the application of National and International Regulations or Standards, in particular by delegation from different Governments. Those activities are hereafter collectively referred to as " Certification ".
1.3. - The Society can also provide services related to Classification and Certification such as ship and
company safety management certification; ship and port security certification, training activities; all activities and duties incidental thereto such as documentation on any supporting means, software, instrumentation, measurements, tests and trials on board.
1.4. - The interventions mentioned in 1.1., 1.2. and 1.3. are referred to as " Services ". The party and/or its

or repair checks, neither in the operation of the Units or in their trade, neither in any advisory services, and cannot be held liable on those accounts. Its certificates cannot be construed as an implied or express warranty of safety, fitness for the purpose, seaworthiness of the Unit or of its value
for sale, insurance or chartering.
5.3. - The Society does not declare the acceptance or commissioning of a Unit, nor of its construction in conformity with its design, that being the exclusive responsibility of its owner or builder,
respectively.

5.4. - The Services of the Society cannot create any obligation bearing on the Society or constitute any
warranty of proper operation, beyond any representation set forth in the Rules, of any Unit, equipment or

Euro, and to a maximum which is the greater of eight hundred thousand (800,000) Euro and one
and a half times the above mentioned fee.
The Society bears no liability for indirect or consequential loss such as e.g. loss of revenue, loss
of profit, loss of production, loss relative to other contracts and indemnities for termination of other agreements.
6.3. - All claims are to be presented to the Society in writing within three months of the date when the Services were supplied or (if later) the date when the events which are relied on of were first known to the Client,

General Notes:
• Piping systems are subdivided into three classes, denoted
as class I, class II and class III. Definitions of the classes of
piping systems as per NR467, Pt C, Ch 1, Sec 10, Tab 3
(the following systems are not covered by this Tab 3: cargo piping for oil tankers, gas tankers and chemical tankers, and fluids for refrigerating plants)
• For cargo pipings of specialized ships, see item H for liquefied gas carriers and item I for oil/FLS tankers and chemical tankers. See item G35 for refrigerating installations
• Valves under static pressure on oil fuel tanks or lubricating oil tanks belong to class II
• Valves and fittings fitted on the ship side and collision
bulkhead belong to class II. See NR467, Pt C, Ch 1, Sec
10, [20.4.3], item b)
• The open ended pipes, irrespective of T, generally belong
to class III (as drains, overflows, vents, exhaust gas lines,
boiler escape pipes, etc.)
• Metallic materials are to be used in accordance with
NR467, Pt C, Ch 1, Sec 10, Tab 5
• Materials for class I and class II piping systems are to be
manufactured and tested in accordance with the appropriate requirements of NR216 (materials for class III piping systems are to be manufactured and tested in
accordance with the requirements of acceptable National
or International standards or specifications)
• As general, survey during fabrication is required for all
piping systems of welded construction

Safeguards for reducing leakage possibility and limiting
its consequences: e.g. pipes led in positions where
leakage of internal fluids will not cause a potential hazard or damage to surrounding areas which may include
the use of pipe ducts, shielding, screening, etc.
Flammable media generally include the flammable liquids as oil fuel, lubricating oil, thermal oil and flammable hydraulic oil
If of welded construction: raw pipes of class 1 and 2 are
to be surveyed during fabrication and after construction
by Society’s surveyor; BV Product certificate “C”
Pressure and temperature conditions other than those
required for class I and class III

irrespective of p and T
Including water, air, gases, non-flammable hydraulic

Plastics may be used for piping systems belonging to
class III in accordance with NR467, Pt C, Ch 1, App 3.
The use of plastics for other systems or in other conditions will be given special consideration. Plastic includes both thermoplastic and thermosetting plastic
materials with or without reinforcement, such as PVC
and FRP (reinforced plastics pipes). Approval and use
