Seminar Invitation - July 11/12, 2019

New offshore standard EN 10225 becomes effective in July 2019.

Do you know how your business is impacted?

The new EN 10225, the delivery standard for plates, sections and hollow sections for offshore steel structures (Weldable structural steels for fixed offshore structures - Technical delivery conditions), contains innovations and changes in its new revision. This will affect many areas in the offshore business sector, from design to material purchasing and fabrication.

Reason for revision

The environment for offshore projects is beginning to change. Oil & Gas companies are steadily looking for new exploration fields, geographical markets will move to harsher environments and deeper water depths. To adapt new steel structures towards those increasing requirements, the committee of the EN 10225 revised the norm for future purposes.

Effective date: July 2019 without transition period

The outcome is a comprehensive revision that will be published in July 2019 at the latest. As it will come into effect without transition period, designers, purchasers and fabricators are impacted by several abrupt key changes.
