    Guidelines for design and construction of offshore supply vessels, (OSV), 2006 Edition

    These Guidelines have been developed for the design and construction of new offshore supply vessels with a view to promoting the safety of such vessels and their personnel, recognizing the unique design features and service characteristics of these vessels.

    Furthermore, these Guidelines provide a standard of safety equivalent to the relevant requirements of the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1974, as amended, and in particular to the stability criteria of the Code on Intact Stability for all Types of Ships Covered by IMO Instruments (IS Code), as amended.

    Provisions for offshore supply vessels carrying more than 12 industrial personnel are not included in these Guidelines.

    When an offshore supply vessel is used for special purposes, such as diving assistance or oceanographic surveys, the persons on board in connexion with these special purposes should be treated as special personnel.

    The content of these Guidelines was reviewed in 2006 in order to update the references contained therein, to enhance subdivision and damage stability requirements, to remove duplication of the content between the Guidelines and the IS Code and to introduce an appropriate documentation of compliance with the Guidelines.

    Accessing your IMO Digital Purchases

    From 1 May 2022, IMO moved to a new, hybrid version of the IMO Bookshelf, which enables browser-based access to IMO publications.

    Support for the existing Windows-based version of the IMO Bookshelf will continue until 30 June 2023, but no new purchases in this format can be made after 1 May 2022.

    Migration to the new system:

    • Migration can only take place once a customer has purchased an e-reader for the new IMO Bookshelf service from 1 May 2022.
    • Customers do not need to migrate their existing publications unless they choose to do so. Their Windows-based IMO Bookshelf products will remain available indefinitely, although technical support for the product will end in June 2023.
    • Users wishing to migrate must be using version 5.13 of the Windows-based IMO Bookshelf software.

    Users wishing to migrate their existing IMO publications to the new service, who has purchased an e-reader for the new IMO Bookshelf service from 1 May 2022, should contact us at books@ms-sc.org with the details of their IMO Virtual Publications account. We will arrange the migration with IMO.

    The new, hybrid version of the IMO Bookshelf enables browser-based access to IMO publications.
    The new IMO Bookshelf is an online library solution for the maritime industry. It provides users with streamlined access to IMO eBooks.

    Once purchased, we will assign the eBook to your email address and send you your login details for IMO Bookshelf.

    Benefits and Features of the new IMO Bookshelf:

    No installation required
    The new IMO Bookshelf is a browser-based hybrid software, meaning that it runs in web browsers yet behaves like desktop software, so there is no need to download or install anything.

    Works on low connection speeds
    Ships with download speeds as low as 0.3 Mbps can access the new IMO Bookshelf while at sea.

    Access on multiple PCs/devices
    The new IMO Bookshelf is not limited to one device and can be accessed on any computer or tablet that can access the internet. Multiple licences are required for multiple concurrent users.

    Use online and offline
    The new IMO Bookshelf provides flexible access. Our digital titles can be viewed while connected to the internet and are downloaded to the browser’s cache for access offline, making it suitable for use even when you do not have a reliable internet connection.

    Cyber secure
    Designed with new requirements on cyber security in mind.
