NASSCO To Participate In NSRP Standards Program

National Steel and Shipbuilding Co. (NASSCO) of San Diego has announced a project to evaluate foreign and international standards for acceptability in U.S.-flag vessel applications. Sponsored by the National Shipbuilding Research Program (NSRP), the project is designed to increase U.S. shipbuilding competitiveness by reducing the cost of foreign equipment procurement and approval by the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG). The project will first perform a survey to establish marine industry priorities for standards evaluations. Based upon these priorities, NASSCO and its subcontractor, Petrochem Marine Consultants (PMC), will then perform evaluations of foreign and international standards, including comparisons to recognized U.S. standards. Acceptable evaluations will then be submitted to the USCG for review and approval. All project data will be maintained in a database that will be made available to the industry and the USCG to expedite future foreign equipment and standards approvals. NASSCO urges the marine industry to support this project by responding to the survey and providing any known foreign equipment and standards approvals for the project database.
