Make sure that the TEMPSC:

  • Conform to the latest requirements of SOLAS, IMO and LSA codes and is approved by DNV in accordance with the EU Marine Equipment Directive (MED)
  • The ease or difficulty of entering the TEMPSC from the rig while hanging in the davits fully dressed in survival suits and lifejackets
