This international standard applies to pressure-vacuum relief valves protecting marine vessel systems, including cargo tanks, which may be subject to gas/vapour pressure or vacuum beyond the design parameters of the system/tank. This International Standard specifies the minimum requirements for performance and testing of pressure-vacuum relief valves, with emphasis on selection of materials, internal finish and surface requirements for pressure-vacuum valves installed on cargo tanks in tankers (see Annex A). This International Standard specifies design and in-service performance criteria, operational testing and maintenance requirements. Certification to this International Standard does not imply suitability for any given installation; it indicates that certain minimum requirements have been considered and that information necessary for determination of suitability is provided to the buyer of the equipment. This International Standard does not cover all test procedures for devices that prevent the passage of flame, such as flame arresters. Such devices may be used in conjunction with pressure/vacuum valves.
