ANNEX
AMENDMENTS TO THE UNIFIED INTERPRETATIONS OF SOLAS CHAPTER II-2 AND THE FSS AND FTP CODES (MSC/Circ.1456)
ANNEX 1
The existing paragraph 4 is replaced by the following:
"4 Location of the fire main isolation valves in tankers (regulation II-2/10.2.1.4.4)
The complete interpretation of the phrase "the isolation valves shall be fitted in the fire main at the poop front in a protected position" would be that the valve should be located within an accommodation space, service spaces or control station. However, the valve may be located on the open deck aft of the cargo area provided that the valve is located:
.1 at least 5 m aft of the aft end of the aftermost cargo tank; or
.2 if the above .1 is not practical, within 5 m aft of the aft end of the aftermost cargo tank provided the valve is protected by a permanent steel obstruction."
