CHAPTER 4.
CERTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS FOR
MAN-RATED HYPERBARIC FACILITIES
4.1 INTRODUCTION AND OVERVIEW
4.1.1
Purpose.
This  NAVFAC
Hyperbaric
Systems
Maintenance
Manual  is
issued  to
comply
with
applicable
certification  policy  and  provides  maintenance  personnel  with
guidance  for  the  administration  of  certification  documentation
associated  with  hyperbaric  system  maintenance.
Certification
documentation  guidance  includes,  but  is  not  restricted  to,
operation, maintenance,  repair, and modification of a certified
diving system or manned hyperbaric facility.
4.1.2
Introduction. System certification, as it applies
to man-rated hyperbaric facilities,  is a systematic process for
providing  maximum  assurance  that  the  system  is  materially  and
procedurally adequate to safely operate within the intended mission
profile. This chapter contains guidelines for maintenance personnel
involved in this certification process for shore-based hyperbaric
facilities. The intent of this document is to provide practical
certification  guidance  in  amplification  of  the  requirements  of
SS521-AA-MAN-010.
4.1.3
Background.  The  certification  process  and  the
assignment of responsibilities through the unit level are defined
by NAVFACINST 9940.1 and amplified by NAVFACINST 5420.19. The two
principals involved are the system sponsor and the NAVFAC SCA. The
system sponsor may be identified as a commanding officer, officer
in charge,  or  program  manager  of  a  command  or  activity  that
supports, operates, or develops Deep Submergence Systems.
The system sponsor is responsible for ensuring that his system
is  certified  in  accordance  with  the  established  certification
procedures. The NAVFAC SCA is responsible for ensuring an adequate
certification review process, but is not responsible for upgrading
the  sponsor's  system  to,  or  maintaining  it  in  a  certified
condition. The SCA will, however, answer the sponsor's questions
a n d  conduct  impartial  technical  reviews  of  the  system  and
associated documentation to determine if it is adequate and safe.
SS521-AA-MAN-010  constitutes  the  procedural  and  technical
guidance  for  the  prosecution  of  certification.
It  provides
guidelines  to  help  the  sponsor  decide  what  type  of  supporting
documentation should be provided for materials, testing, and system
operation. of primary concern to the sponsor is an understanding
of the steps  required to have  the  system  certified.
