New Specification for Selection and Application of Cryogenic Tank Insulation Systems on LNG-Fueled Ships

1. Scope

To develop standard specifications, test methods, terminology, practices, and guides for the design, construction, operation and repair of marine vessels, structures, systems, equipment and materials. The Committee also is responsible for developing standard specifications, guides, terminology and practices for marine environmental matters. The Committee will coordinate its efforts with other ASTM Committees and outside organizations having mutual interests.
Area of Interest - The principal areas of interest include improved quality, reduced risk, marine environmental protection and reduced cost in the shipbuilding, ship operation and marine industry through the development of a body of ASTM standards. In pursuit of this objective, existing standards shall be recognized and referenced as appropriate, and every effort shall be made to complement rather than to duplicate or conflict with regulatory agency requirements. Throughout these bylaws the term "ship" shall be interpreted as including all marine vessels.
