The CIMAC WG21 Guideline on the 'Hydraulics and Lubrication Rules of Steerable Thrusters' addresses a collection of questionable or unclear rules from classification societies, that are prescriptive in nature, for hydraulic systems for steering and propulsion units. Each selected rule is considered as written and the aim is to explain the issues with the current rules and come up with a guidance proposing how the rule should be considered for ensuring the safety of the component and/or system design.
