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.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www .iso .org/ directives).

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. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www .iso .org/ patents).

Introduction

This document has been produced to meet an industry need identified by the International Maritime

Organization (IMO). This document has been designed to support the IMO International Code of Safety

for Ships using Gases or other Low-flashpoint Fuels (IGF Code).

Due to numerous economic and environmental factors, the use of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a

vessel’s fuel has increased. While LNG fuelled ships and vessels have been in service for over 10 years,

most of these vessels have operated within small defined areas using LNG bunkering operations

designed for that particular vessel service. The increase in LNG fuelled vessels corresponds with an

increase in the number of the regions that these vessels will service. Therefore, there is a need to

standardize LNG bunkering operations internationally to a reasonable degree so that vessel operators

will have the tools to select vessel fuel providers that meet set safety and fuel quality standards and LNG

bunkering operations will be conducted safely. This document can be used for both vessels involved in

international and domestic service regardless of size.

This document does not replace existing laws or regulations. It is flexible so that it can be applied in

many situations and under various regulatory regimes as long as the requirements of this document

are met. If, however, local regulations preclude its use and do not provide the safety specified in this

document, compliance with this document should not be claimed.
