AbstractThe Canadian Standards Association (CSA) developed a comprehensive Offshore Structures Standard in the early 1990s. The Code has had limited use in Canada, but S471 General Requirements, Design Criteria, the Environment, and Loads has seen international application. The Code is performance-based; setting overall targets for reliability and provides specific guidance on achieving these targets. The provisions in the CSA Standard for ice loads have been reconciled with the Russian codes such as SNiP and VSN. A comparison of the codes has shown that they predict similar ice loads.
