ISO 19030

The ISO 19030 was developed for hull and propeller performance assessment for ships in service. The standard is intended to serve the wider community as well as support shipping operators and suppliers in better business practice. This standard is intended for all stakeholders that are striving to apply a rigorous, yet practical way of measuring the changes in hull and propeller performance. It could be ship owners and operators, companies offering performance monitoring, shipbuilders and companies offering hull and propeller maintenance and coatings. ISO 19030 will make it easier for decision makers to learn from the past and thereby make better informed decisions for tomorrow. It will also provide much needed transparency for buyers and sellers of technologies and services intended to improve hull and propeller performance (Ziarati et al, MariFuture, Development Papers, 2018-2019).
