2.3 Lloyds Register reserves the right to refuse applications for Lloyds Register Type Approval for products made to standards, which are not considered suitable. 2.4 Lloyds Register Type Approval is given on the understanding that the producers recommendations and instructions for his product and any relevant requirements for the particular application satisfy the applicable Lloyds Register Rules. 2.5 Lloyds Register Type Approval does not necessarily preclude inspection, survey or design appraisal Procedures required by Lloyds Register Rules for products to be installed in Lloyds Register classed installations. 2.6 Products that have been tested to satisfy specific requirements, e.g. hazardous areas application (explosion proof, intrinsically safe, etc.), will have that application identified on the Type Approval Certificate and on the Type Approval List Entry appearing on the Lloyds Register web site. 2.7 Where a product is subject to operating conditions such as cyclic loading or chemically induced corrosion, which may dictate the useful life of the product, the producer shall state any such operating requirements which are to be fulfilled. 3. APPROVAL PROCEDURE General 3.1 Initial consultation with Lloyds Register local offices is recommended. The review of product information and consideration of test reports and existing certification shall be co-ordinated by Lloyds Register (London office) or by one of the designated Lloyds Register Type Approval Centres (see section 10), hereafter referred to as Lloyds Register 3.2 Lloyds Register may recognise valid certificates and reports issued by nationally accredited organisations / laboratory, provided such certificates and reports are considered by Lloyds Register to fulfill the requirements specified for Lloyds Register Type Approval. 3.3 Inspection of the manufacturing facilities shall be carried out and type tests witnessed by a Lloyds Register representative unless agreed otherwise in writing. Application for Lloyds Register Type Approval 3.4 Application for Lloyds Register Type Approval should be made on `Approval Services - Request for Quotation` (see Annex A for Sample) obtainable from the local office of Lloyds Register Group Entity. The application should be made by the `Producer` or from producers manufacturing products under licence. The latter shall be accompanied by a written statement from the licensor confirming that there is no objection to the licensee making the application and shall state the producers name responsible for the application. Where the licensor already holds Lloyds Register Type Approval certification for the product, details should be included with the application. 3.5 A separate Request for Quotation form should be completed for each group of product / products.

3.6 The completed request form(s) and documents submitted must contain sufficient information to allow the product to be assessed against the design criteria.

Nothing in these Terms and Conditions creates rights in favour of any person who is not a party to the Contract with an LR Group entity.

This contract is between the Client and Lloyd's Register (hereinafter referred to as LR) for Marine services and is subject to the terms and conditions on this document.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS 1. In these terms and conditions: (i) Services means any and all services provided to the Client by any entity that is part of the LR Group, as hereinafter defined, including any classification of the Clients vessel, equipment or machinery; (ii) the Contract means this agreement for supply of the Services; and (iii) the LR Group means LR, its affiliates and subsidiaries, and the officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents of any of them, individually or collectively. The Client will pay all invoices for the Services within 30 days of the invoice date. LR reserves the right to charge interest at an annual rate of 2% above the greater of the London Interbank Offered Base Rate (LIBOR) or the equivalent in the country where the Client maintains its principal office on any amount remaining unpaid beyond 30 days, and may withhold any or all Services until the arrears, including interest, are paid. LR reserves the right to charge for any work that is additional to that originally quoted. LR will keep confidential and not use or disclose to any third party any technical information or operating data derived from the Client in connection with the Services except as may be required by law or as may be requested by the Client. This obligation will survive termination of the Contract. This obligation will not apply to any technical information or operating data that was in the LR Groups possession before its disclosure in connection with the Services, that is or becomes part of the public domain through no fault of LR or that otherwise becomes available to the LR Group from an independent source not under a confidentiality obligation. This Contract continues in force until terminated by LR or the Client, after giving the other party 30 days written notice. If the Contract is terminated by LR or the Client before the Services under the Contract are completed, LRs fees will be calculated on a pro rata basis up to the date of termination. Any reasonable costs directly attributed to early termination and any amounts then due to LR will immediately become payable. 7. LRs Services do not assess compliance with any standard other than the applicable classification rules, international conventions, or any other standards that are expressly agreed in writing by LR and the Client. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the issuance of a class certificate does not in itself constitute a guarantee that the vessel is seaworthy and does not relieve the owner or operator of the vessel of its non-delegable duty to maintain the vessel in seaworthy condition. If the Client requires classification Services relating to vessels, machinery, or equipment classed by LR in a jurisdiction in which LR itself does not do business the Client hereby acknowledges and agrees that these Services will be performed by a subsidiary or affiliate of LR that is part of the LR Group and that is authorised to conduct classification surveys and issue certificates on the vessel, machinery, or equipment, or by another person or entity that has been approved by LR to perform the Services. In providing Services, information, or advice, the LR Group does not warrant the accuracy of any information or advice supplied. Except as set out in these Terms and Conditions, LR will not be liable for any loss, damage, or expense sustained by any person and caused by any act, omission, error, negligence, or strict liability of any of the LR Group or caused by any inaccuracy in any information or advice given in any way by or on behalf of the LR Group even if held to amount to a breach of warranty. Nevertheless, if the Client uses the Services or relies on any information or advice given by or on behalf of the LR Group and as a result suffers loss, damage, or expense that is proved to have been caused by any negligent act, omission, or error of the LR Group or any negligent inaccuracy in information or advice given by or on behalf of the LR Group, then LR will pay compensation to the Client for its proved loss up to but not exceeding the amount of the fee (if any) charged by LR for that particular service, information, or advice.

or caused by any inaccuracy in any information or advice given in any way by or on behalf of the LR Group. 11. No LR Group entity will be liable or responsible in negligence or otherwise to any person not a party to the agreement pursuant to which any certificate, statement, data, or report is issued by an LR Group entity for (i) any information or advice expressly or impliedly given by an LR Group entity, (ii) any omission or inaccuracy in any information or advice given, or (iii) any act or omission that caused or contributed to the issuance of any certificate, statement data, or report containing the information or advice. Nothing in these Terms and Conditions creates rights in favour of any person who is not a party to the Contract with an LR Group entity. 12. No omission or failure to carry out or observe any stipulation, condition or obligation to be performed under the Contract will give rise to any claim against LR or any other LR Group entity, or be deemed to be a breach of contract, if the failure or omission arises from causes beyond that entitys reasonable control. 13. Any dispute, claim, or litigation between LR and the Client arising from or in connection with the Services provided by LR shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts and will be governed by English law. 14. No addition, alteration or substitution of these Terms and Conditions will bind LR , or form part of this Contract unless it is expressly accepted in writing by an authorised LR representative who expressly states in writing that LR is agreeing to alter these Terms and Conditions. In the event of any conflict between these Terms and Conditions and any document purporting to impose different terms, these Terms and Conditions will prevail. 15. Any classed vessel, machinery or equipment must be operated only in a manner consistent with the proposed design criteria and any limits agreed at the time of classification. If any vessel or equipment operates outside these limits, such facts must be reported to LR without delay.

Annex B (cont.)
16. Any damage, defect, breakdown, or grounding that could invalidate the conditions for which a class has been assigned, must be reported to LR without delay. 17. All repairs to hull, equipment and machinery that may be required for a ship to retain class are to be carried out to the satisfaction of LR. When repairs are effected at a port, terminal, or location where the services of an LR surveyor are not available, the repairs are to be surveyed by one of the LR Groups surveyors at the earliest opportunity thereafter. 18. Plans and particulars of any proposed alterations to the approved scantlings and arrangements of hull, equipment, or machinery are to be submitted to LR for approval, and the alterations are to be carried out to the satisfaction of the LR Groups surveyors. 19. It is the responsibility of the Client to ensure that all surveys necessary for the maintenance of class are carried out at the proper time and in accordance with LRs instructions. 20. LR may give timely notice to the Client about forthcoming surveys. The omission of notice, however, does not absolve the Client from responsibility to comply with requirements for maintenance of class. 21. When the Regulations with regard to surveys on the hull, equipment, or machinery have not been complied with and the ship is thereby not entitled to retain class, the class will be suspended or withdrawn, at LRs discretion. 22. When reported defects in the hull, equipment, or machinery are found and the Client fails to repair these defects in accordance with LRs requirements, the class will be suspended or withdrawn, at LRs discretion.
23.

LR in its discretion may withhold or, if already granted, may suspend or withdraw any class (or withhold any certificate or report in any other case) if a Client fails to comply with the conditions set forth in Paragraphs 15 through 22 or in the event of non-payment of any fee.
