The National Maritime Research Center--Galveston set up a Task in April 1973, to Prepare International Standards for Commercial Nuclear Ships. The objective was to prepare a cross-reference document which lists all of the available national and international standards and regulations for commercial nuclear ship construction and operation. To implement this task, a world wide correspondence was initiated. Replies from 53 addressees were received, of which 38 were considered useful and meaningful at this time. From these were chosen the following: IMCO & IAEA; South Africa Atomic Energy Board; New Zealand AEC; N.S. Savannah--Port Operation Criteria; Otto Hahn--Technical Safety Evaluation; Safety of Life at Sea Convention; Babcock & Wilcox; USAEC: United States Coast Guard; U.S. Navy; Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers; American Bureau of Shipping; Lloyds Register; Germanischer Lloyd; Registro Italiano; Bureau Veritas; Nippon Kaiji Kyokai; N.S. Savannah Safety Assessment; Brazil National Nuclear Energy Commission; U.S.S.R. Register of Shipping. Volume I (32 pages) consists of the resulting regulatory data and state-of-the-art information which has been divided into 30 broad headings with additional subheadings covering every phase of the nuclear ship concept. A supporting compendium, Volume II (832 pages), consists of a linear, full text presentation of the principal sources previously listed, plus several additional sources related only to the Insurance, Liability and Indemnity Title.
