FOREWORD
NORSOK (The competitive standing of the Norwegian offshore sector) is the industry initiative to add value, reduce cost and lead time and remove unnecessary activities in offshore field developments and operations. The NORSOK standards are developed by the Norwegian petroleum industry as a part of the NORSOK initiative and are jointly issued by OLF (The Norwegian Oil Industry Association) and TBL (The Federation of Norwegian Engineering Industries). NORSOK standards are administered by NTS (Norwegian Technology Standards Institution). The purpose of this industry standard is to replace the individual oil company specifications for use in existing and future petroleum industry developments, subject to the individual company's review and application. The NORSOK standards make extensive references to international standards. Where relevant, the contents of this standard will be used to provide input to the international standardization process. Subject to implementation into international standards, this NORSOK standard will be withdrawn. Annex A is normative. Annex B is informative.

INTRODUCTION
Main Changes from revision 1 to revision 2 are in summary: Partial implementation of the following guidelines from the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate: -Guidelines on Living Quarters to regulations relating to systematic follow-up of the working environment in the petroleum activities. (Published 8 March 1995). -Guidelines on means of access, stairs, ladders etc. to regulations relating to systematic followup of the working environment in the petroleum activities. (Published 8 March 1995). Various transfer of operational experience. Room finishes schedule in data sheet CDS-102 now allows for specifying dry/ wet and clean/ dirty room usage.

SCOPE

This standard defines the basic requirements for the architectural design and engineering of the Living Quarters area on offshore installations in the petroleum activities. The requirements have emphasis on installations defined as being of a fixed type. For mobile installations additional requirements may be applicable. The standard specifies the minimum functional requirements to the LQ, and is meant to provide a tool, (the Living Quarters Area Room Programme), for systematic treatment of rooms/areas and related data. The description of the main facilities in this standard shall be read in conjunction with NORSOK C-002, Architectural components and equipment, where more detailed information is specified with respect to materials, finishes, furniture, equipment, etc. Other discipline requirements related to this subject are covered in respective NORSOK standards. These activities and requirements shall be integrated with the architectural design development to achieve a co-ordinated and optimal solution for the Living Quarters area.
