The Guide provides advice for Masters, Marine Superintendents and others, such as STS service providers and transfer organisers, involved in the planning and execution of STS operations.

It provides recommendations on safety, minimum equipment levels and good operating practices. Particular attention is given to the effective planning of operations and aspects including risk assessment, ship compatibility, and the management of workloads to minimise fatigue.

This guide is a required publication on the SIRE Vessel Inspection Questionnaires for Oil Tankers, Combination Carriers, Shuttle Tankers, Chemical Tankers and Gas Tankers. The guide does not cover STS transfer operations that are associated with offshore exploration and production activities.
