Classification


Classification is a comprehensive verification service providing assurance that a set of requirements laid down in rules and standards established by the classification society are met during design and construction, and maintained during operation of an offshore unit. The rules and standards are aimed at ensuring safety against hazards to the unit, personnel, and against hazards to the environment. Classification implies an activity, in which a ship or an offshore unit is surveyed during construction on the basis of design approval, tested before being taken into service, and surveyed regularly during its whole operational life. The aim is to verify that the required safety standard is built in, observed and maintained.
Classification has gained world-wide recognition as representing an adequate level of safety and performing approval and surveys.
