Ships and marine technology — Breathing apparatus for ships — Part 3: Self-contained breathing apparatus (safety equipment) required by the IMO IBC and IGC Codes

ISO 23269-3:2011 provides performance specifications of the self-contained air-breathing apparatus (SCBA) (not using stored oxygen) required by the IMO IBC Code (for bulk chemicals) and the IMO IGC Code (for gas carriers) developed by the International Maritime Organization. The breathing apparatus manufactured in accordance with ISO 23269-3:2011 constitutes an element of the set of safety equipment which permits personnel to enter a gas-filled compartment and perform work there. The breathing apparatus is not intended for use in fighting fires or suitable for entry into flames.

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies

(ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO

technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been

established has the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and

non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the

International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The main task of technical committees is to prepare International Standards. Draft International Standards

adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting. Publication as an

International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent

rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

ISO 23269-3 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 8, Ships and marine technology, Subcommittee

SC 1, Lifesaving and fire protection.

ISO 23269 consists of the following parts, under the general title Ships and marine technology — Breathing

apparatus for ships:
⎯ Part 1: Emergency escape breathing devices (EEBD) for shipboard use
⎯ Part 2: Self-contained breathing apparatus for shipboard firefighters

⎯ Part 3: Self-contained breathing apparatus (safety equipment) required by the IMO IBC and IGC Codes

⎯ Part 4: Self-contained breathing apparatus for emergency escape required by the IMO IBC and IGC

Introduction

The IMO IBC Code (for bulk chemicals) and the IMO IGC Code (for gas carriers) developed by the

International Maritime Organization require that self-contained breathing apparatus (safety equipment) be

carried on board chemical tankers and gas carrier ships. However, these Codes do not technically specify the

details of such apparatus; such a specification is necessary to provide a sufficient safety level for users.
