Applicable to all classification types is that the structure must not crack or allow flames to penetrate for the entire test period.
About the International Marine Organization
The International Maritime Organisation – IMO – is the United Nations’ specialised agency dealing with the safety and security of international shipping and the prevention of pollution from ships.
IMO, through the SOLAS Convention (International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea) establishes minimum standards for the construction, equipment, and use of ships, for the safety of life at sea.
The European Union implements this regulatory framework through the Marine Equipment Directive 2014/90/EU together with the Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/1158.
