I - Part 1 GL 2008 Section 17 B Spare Parts Chapter 2 Page 17–1 Section 17 Spare Parts A. General 1. In order to be able to restore engine operation and manoeuvring capacity to the ship in the event of damage at sea spare parts for the main drive and the essential auxiliary machinery are to be carried on board every ship, together with the necessary tools. These Rules are considered to be complied with if the range of spare parts corresponds to the tables given below and allowing for the extend of the installed systems and components in question at the time of commissioning. 2. Depending on the design and arrangement of the engine plant, the intended service and operation of the ship, and also the manufacturer's recommendations, a different volume of spare parts may be agreed between the ship owner and GL. Where the volume of spare parts is based on special arrangements between the ship owner and GL, technical documentation is to be provided. A list of the relevant spare parts is to be carried on board. 3. In the case of propulsion systems and essential auxiliary machinery which are not included in the following tables, the requisite range of spare parts is to be established in each individual case between shipyard/shipowner and GL. B. Volume of Spare Parts The volume of spare parts in accordance with the tables below is classified according to different ranges of service: A = Unlimited range of service and RSA (200) B = All other ranges of service Explanations: RSA (200) (Restricted International Service) This range of service is limited, in general, to trade along the coast, provided that the distance to the nearest port of refuge and the offshore distance do not exceed 200 nautical miles. This applies also to trade in the North Sea and within enclosed seas, such as the Mediterranean, the Black Sea and waters with similar seaway conditions. Trade to Iceland, Spitsbergen and the Azores is exempted. RSA (50) (Coastal Service) This range of service is limited, in general, to trade along the coasts, provided that the distance to the nearest port of refuge and the offshore distance do not exceed 50 nautical miles. This applies also to trade within enclosed seas, such as the Baltic Sea and waters with similar seaway conditions. RSA (SW) (Sheltered Water Service) This range of service is limited to trade in shoals, bays, haffs and firths or similar waters where heavy seas do not occur.
