This LAP looks at the difference in the service and maintenance inspection (process and requirement) for a hydrogen vessel compared to vessels using other low flash-point fuels. It also lists the responsible authorities or independent bodies assigned to carry out technical inspections
There are no special requirements for ships using hydrogen as propulsion, except those of the IGF Code, so as per now there is no barrier specifically for hydrogen. However, the additional documentation requirements for alternative designs could perhaps be followed by specific operation and maintenance requirements in future
This map depicts the severity of this barrier across the HyLaw Partner countries.
