These suggested standards are useful for all types of LNG carriers, regardless of size. They are relevant to any officer that is involved in the entire LNG cargo cycle operation, including the role of cargo engineer.

It is the responsibility of the owner to decide the appropriate level and type of training required, as part of a formal competence management system. Additional training, not covered by this document, may be required for specific operations or equipment.

This document updates and replaces the previous edition LNG Shipping Suggested Competency Standards (2008). This update reflects changes in technology and lessons learnt from incidents since the previous edition was published. Floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) operations are a significant addition that is now covered by this edition.
