Code of Safe Practice for the Carriage of Cargoes and Persons by Offshore Supply Vessels (OSV Code)

This publication looks at the requirements of the Code of Safe Practice for the Carriage of Cargoes and Persons by Offshore Supply Vessels (OSV Code). The Code covers the design, construction and operation of offshore support vessels (OSVs) that transport hazardous and noxious liquid substances in bulk for the servicing and resupplying of offshore platforms, mobile offshore drilling units and other offshore installations, including those employed in the search for and recovery of hydrocarbons from the seabed.

The OSV Code is an international standard used to avoid or reduce to a minimum the hazards that affect offshore supply vessels in their daily operation of carrying cargoes and persons to, from and between offshore installations.

This publication covers every aspect of OSV operation, including vessel design, cargo hazards, cargo transfer, venting, fire-fighting, electrical installations, operational requirements, pollution prevention and personnel safety.

The OSV Code applies the standards contained in the International Code for the Construction and Equipment of Ships Carrying Dangerous Chemicals in Bulk (IBC Code) and the International Code for the Construction and Equipment of Ships Carrying Liquefied Gases in Bulk (IGC Code) to the extent that is practicable and reasonable, taking into account the unique design features and service characteristics of OSVs.
