HP-25/35 Used to Test for Compliance with 33 CFR 156.170


The US Coast Guard Captain of the Port (COTP) in New Orleans has recently issued a warning to vessels concerning compliance with 33 CFR 156.170, which requires each transfer pipe system on board a vessel to be tested under static liquid pressure at least 1.5 times the maximum allowable working pressure annually. During Port State Control (PSC) examinations, the COTP has noted that approximately 30% of vessels are not in compliance. In most cases, the PSC Officers found that the vessels had tested the systems with air rather than with liquid which makes the test null and void. In addition, several vessels were not able to provide written records of the date and result of the most recent test and inspection of bunker lines/transfer systems as required by 33 CFR 155.820.

The Coast Guard has not yet begun to issue fines or penalties for non-compliance. However, vessels do run the risk of having their bunkering operations stopped until the proper tests are conducted.
