Is there a difference in the service and maintenance inspection (process and requirement) for a hydrogen vessel compared to vessels using other low flash-point fuels?
a - all cases
b - additional requirements in case of liquid hydrogen
c - additional requirements in case of compressed gaseous hydrogen If yes, please specify, e.g. what are the specific maintenance needs and service requirements for hydrogen vehicles?
Which are the responsible authorities/independent bodies to carry out technical inspections?
Is it a barrier? Yes
Type of Barrier Regulatory gap
Assessment Severity
1
Assessment In case of usage of hydrogen as fuel for fuel cell driven ships/vessels this LAP could hinder the market penetration of hydrogen but in Austria this sector hasn’t got a very high importance regarding hydrogen application yet

The impact of this lap, as a barrier and regulatory gap is difficult to estimate, due to lack of experience among the relevant stakeholders..
