Marine Safety Criteria
August 2014 – Revision 6
Scope of Application
This Marine Safety Criteria applies to vessels tendered for chartering or owned by Repsol,
vessels transporting Repsol’s cargoes, and also to vessels visiting terminals owned or operated
by Repsol, excluding vessels calling in our terminals only for: fuel oil bunkering, nitrogen
blanketing and slops discharge
1) Crew and Level of Certificates.
a) Operators of seagoing vessels must ensure that it is not necessary for the Master to
keep regular watches by adopting a three-watch system. It is strongly recommended
to have a Master plus three deck Officers as bridge manning team.
b) All Officers must be certified for the type of tanker on which they serve.
Qualification must be in accordance with STCW Regulation V/1 paragraph 2.2
complemented by Section A-V/1 paragraph 8 , 15 or 22. For Officers not holding
appropriate special qualification course, the Operator must provide it as soon as
practicable.
c) All Deck Officers must attend Bridge Resource Management or Bridge Team
Management course which meets the requirements detailed in Table A-II/I of the
2010 Manila amendments to the STCW Convention and Code. For Officers not
holding appropriate qualification course, the Operator must provide it as soon as
practicable.
d) Senior Engine Officers must attend main and auxiliary machinery operation
simulation course in accordance with Engine Room Simulator- IMO model course
2.07. For Officers not holding appropriate qualification course, the Operator must
provide it as soon as practicable.
2) Safety Management.
a) Safety management system which complies with ISM code requirements or an
equivalent standard must be implemented on board
b) A fixed fire detection and alarm system has to be provided in the Engine Room,
Cargo Pump Room, Forecastle and Accommodation area. If installation is not yet
available, it should be provided not later than vessel next dry dock.
3) Bridge Equipment and Procedures.
In addition to the standard SOLAS requirements vessels must be fitted with:
a) Ship of 3000 tonnes gross tonnage or more must be fitted with two (2) radars.
It is strongly recommended for one of them to be fitted with an Automatic
Radar Plotting Aid (ARPA)
b) Two sets of satellite positioning systems i.e. GPS.
c) Course recorder. If the recorder is not yet available it should be provided not
later than the next dry dock. Equivalent system will be considered.

4) Pollution prevention.
a) A cargo pump room bilge high-level alarm, with at least two (2) sensors (dual
safety), located at port and starboard side preferably, is to be fitted and fully
operational. If installation is not yet available it should be provided not later
than vessel next dry dock.
b) Storage and service bunker (fuel oil and gas oil) tanks must have high-level
alarms.
5) Cargo and ballast system.
a) A fixed monitoring system with optical and acoustic alarm for detection of
dangerous gases in void spaces and ballast tanks is strongly recommended to
be fitted and operational. Alarm signals to be automatically effected at Engine
Control Room, Cargo Control Room and Navigation Bridge. If a system is not
fitted, procedures for daily monitoring of above mentioned spaces must be
implemented, and records with gas concentration readings shall be made
available for inspection.
b) All cargo and slop tanks must be fitted with high level alarms and independent
(from main fixed ullage monitoring system) high-high level alarms (98%).
c) Cargo handling operations must be performed under closed system condition.
When fixed closed ullaging system is temporarily out of service and loading
or discharging operations are carried out, always in close condition, but
through the vapour locks, one (1) UTI tape for every cargo tank being worked
simultaneously must be available on board. The sonic hermetic tapes must be
checked annually and certified. Certificates must be available onboard.
d) Cargo pumps emergency stop must be provided and located in Cargo Control
Room (if fitted), on the main deck in the manifolds’ area (P+S), at the cargo
pump-room entrance and lower platform and on the poop deck if the stern
discharge line is fitted. If installation is not yet available it should be provided
not later than vessel next dry dock.
e) All the control equipment such as: reference pressure gauge and thermometer,
all other pressure gauges, vacuum gauges, thermometers as well as alarms,
trips, etc. must be checked annually and results recorded.
6) Engine Room & Steering Gear.
Engine room must be fitted with high-level bilge alarm, with at least two (2) sensors.
Additional requirements for LPG/Gas Carriers:
1. The minimum allowable cargo tank temperature must be clearly displayed at vessel
manifold as well as on cargo tank domes.

2. A clear indication in metres of the sounding corresponding to the cargo tank high
level alarms must be displayed in the CCR (Cargo Control Room) or in the place
from where the topping up is carried out.
3. The vessels must be provided with at least 3 remote positions for manual activation
of the ESD (Emergency Shut Down) fail-safe design.
4. It is strongly recommended that accessory and instrumentation lines in cargo piping
have screwed couplings to be isolated from main lines by two valves.
Additionally to the ESD valves test required by applicable Gas code, a pressure test against these
valves must be done at least annually and results recorded.
Additional requirements for vessels dedicated to bunker delivery:
1. Delivery operations must be performance with a sealed counter, which must be
checked and certified annually by shore service
2. New crewmember familiarisation: every new crewmember, before taking cargo
responsibilities, must participate in at least three loading operations with their
corresponding discharges
