3 Introduction 1. The year 2012 edition of the Rules for Building and Classing Steel Vessels Under 90 meters (295 feet) in Length consists of the eight (8) booklets as shown in Table 1. With regard to three booklets, Part 1, Part 2, and Part 7: a) The purpose of the generic title ABS Rules for Conditions of Classification (Part 1) is to reflect the expanded contents of PART 1, as a result of including consolidated requirements for Classification applicable to all types of and sizes of vessels, barges and specific shipboard arrangements/systems, etc., except for those in offshore service, as specified in the Foreword to Part 1. Additional specific requirements are contained in Part 1 of these Rules for Building and Classing Steel Vessels Under 90 meters (295 feet) in Length b) The purpose of the generic title ABS Rules for Materials and Welding of PART 2 is to emphasize the common applicability of the requirements to ABS-classed vessels, other marine structures and their associated machinery, and thereby make PART 2 more readily a common PART of various ABS Rules and Guides, as appropriate. c) The purpose of the generic title ABS Rules for Survey After Construction (Part 7) is to reflect the expanded contents of PART 7, as a result of including consolidated requirements for Surveys After Construction applicable to all types and sizes of vessels, barges and specific shipboard arrangements/systems, etc., as specified in Part 7, Chapter 1, Section The numbering system applied in the Rules is shown in Table The primary changes from the 2011 edition of the Rules are identified and listed in Table 3.
