Press release date: August 24, 2010

W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa.-All interested parties are invited to participate in the development of a new standard, ASTM WK28289, Guide for Design, Operation, Inspection and Maintenance of Oil Spill Response Vessels (OSRV). The proposed standard is being developed by Subcommittee F25.07 on General Requirements, part of ASTM International Committee F25 on Ships and Marine Technology.

According to Thane Gilman, systems engineering division, U.S. Coast Guard, and F25.07 chair, the current inventory of oil spill response vessels includes different designs based on size, equipment and mission.

"The impetus behind the development of ASTM WK28289 is the perceived need within the oil spill recovery industry to standardize the design, equipment and some operations for certain types of oil spill response vessels," says Gilman. "The proposed guide will define standard designs, engineering systems and required onboard spill cleanup equipment for OSRVs of varying sizes."

Gilman notes that primary users of the proposed standard will be companies engaged in oil spill recovery operations, vessel operators, shipyards, ship design naval architects and marine engineers. Standards under the jurisdiction of F25, as well as other ASTM committees, such as D19 on Water and F20 on Hazardous Substances and Oil Spill Response, will be referenced in ASTM WK28289.

ASTM International welcomes and encourages participation in the development of its standards. For more information on becoming an ASTM member, visit
