Government agency Enterprise Singapore is looking for public comment on amendments to the Singapore bunkering documents Technical Reference for bunker mass flow metering (TR 48:2015) and Code of practice for bunkering (SS 600:2014).
The amendment to TR 48:2015 updates the documentation required to be submitted for mass flow meter requirement (Subclause 6.2.3 of the standard).
It also includes the changes to Annex P (Bunker delivery note) to align with the latest sulphur requirements in MARPOL Annex VI.
The amendment to SS 600:2014 updates Annex G (Example of bunker delivery note) to align with the latest sulphur requirements in MARPOL Annex VI.
Closing date for public comments on documents have been scheduled at 16 July; they can be downloaded from the link here.
Singapore Standards are established based on an open system which is also in accordance with the World Trade Organisation requirements, notes Enterprise Singapore.
These documents are issued as part of a consultation process before any standards are introduced or reviewed.
This important stage in the development of Singapore Standards is the public comment period.
This mechanism helps industry, companies and other stakeholders be aware of forthcoming changes to Singapore Standards and provide them with an opportunity to influence, before their publication, the standards that have been developed by their industry and for their industry.
