ISO 19906 Update - An International Standard for Arctic Offshore Structures

In 2014, the International Standards Organisation (ISO) approved the proposal to update ISO 19906, the International Standard for design of Arctic Offshore Structures. The revision is being developed by an ISO working group (WG8) led by Canada, within ISO Subcommittee TC67/SC7 for offshore structures. WG8 had been established in 2002 with the remit to develop a new standard, now ISO 19906. The first edition (ISO 19906:2010) has been adopted by all “arctic” and many other countries, replacing existing national documents. Planning for the revision started in 2013. New knowledge gained from front-end engineering design for development projects, joint industry research projects, and activities such as Barents 2020, suggested that ISO 19906 needed to be updated to maintain currency and relevance. The technical work was initiated in 2014, with a review of issues to be addressed and the re-manning of Technical Panels with international experts to address them. A first working draft (WD1) of the revision was completed in October 2016. Publication of the approved second edition is currently scheduled for December 2018. This paper includes an overview of current status and experiences. It presents the organisation and timeline for the revision work, and a summary of the changes drafted. It also presents some key interfaces, with the others of the ISO 19900 series of International Standards for offshore structures, and with the new ISO Subcommittee TC67/SC8 for arctic operations
