All the following points are additions to the 7th eddition

1 Scope

1.1 b) Shipboard applications; these lifting devices (rated for 10,000 lbs. or more) are mounted on surface-type vessels

1.1 c) Heavy Lift applications: cranes for heavy-lift on barges, elevating vessels or other vessels, used in construction and salvage operations

1.3 Equipment (e.g. davits, launch frames) not included in the scope of this recommended practice

1.4 Lifting devices not covered by this document operated, inspected, and maintained in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations

4.4 Personnel Transfer

4.4.1 Devices shall be inspected, Maintained and refurbished in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations.

C.2.1 No transfer of personnel against his or her wishes

C.2.4 A JSA should be conducted

C.2.5 No personal luggage or cargo unless device is designed or use

C.2.7 Training for First time personnel

4.7 Load Testing

4.7.2 e) When the test load is lifted the crane operator shall allow the control lever/s to return to the neutral position.

4.7.2.l) A live weight test shall be performed for initial and temporary installations and for relocated cranes as follows

–  Load test weight/s shall be swung in all directions which the crane will be operated avoiding obstructions
–  Test load shall be raised and lowered to demonstrate the hoist will function properly and test the static brakes;

5 Inspection, Testing, & Maintenance

5.1.2.2 If the crane sits idle for three (3) months or more the crane shall be subject to a monthly inspection and full function operation check.

5.3.3.5 Welding repairs shall not be made to critical components, without specific repair procedures, MTRs, NDE reports

5.3.3.6 Repair documentation of critical components shall include MTRs as applicable, Welder certifications and welding procedure(s) identification number. This documentation shall be maintained in the crane files for the life of the crane

5.5.2 Cranes shall be rerated and load charts revised in accordance with the edition of API Spec 2 C in effect on the original manufacture date of the crane.
5.5.3 If the crane manufacture date is unknown, or prior to Match 1, 1983, the load ratings from API 2 C, 3rd edition shall apply.

5.6 The qualified source shall document the duration on the temporary load chart

6 Wire rope

6.1.1 The Crane owner shall develop and Implement a written policy for wire rope and sling inspection, Lubrication, Maintenance and Replacement.

6.1.2 The Crane owner’s written policy should also include a process to document the various activities that can be conducted on the crane’s wire rope during its lifespan. Section 6 requirements do not apply to the rigging of ATB equipment. These rigging components to the ATB equipment shall be included as part of the periodic inspection program

6.2.1 Wire rope is a structural component of the crane requiring periodic replacement. Initial wire rope dimensional measurements should be collected and documented in the cranes file at the time of installation and should be referred to during subsequent wire rope inspections.
