Material up-grading

Is material upgrading permitted by ABS Rules?

For example,
Can we upgrade EH36 material to EH36Z by conducting UT Lam check as per ASTM A578 Acceptance Level-C critera and Through thickness tensile test to meet Z35requirement?

If so, which Part (Part-2 or Part-3...) of ABS Rules under which class or section it is permitted?
