In addition, it is applicable to compliant bottom founded structures, steel gravity structures, jack-ups, other bottom founded structures and other structures related to offshore structures (such as underwater oil storage tanks, bridges and connecting structures).
This document contains requirements for planning and engineering of the design, fabrication, transportation and installation of new structures as well as, if relevant, their future removal.
NOTE 1 Specific requirements for the design of fixed steel offshore structures in arctic environments are presented in ISO 19906.
NOTE 2 Requirements for topsides structures are presented in ISO 19901-3; for marine operations in, ISO 19901‑6; for structural integrity management, in ISO 19901-9 and for the site-specific assessment of jack-ups, in ISO 19905‑1.
