DNV is a leading class society because:
Quality is DNV Maritime’s corporate priority number one. This is underlined by the fact that DNV has had the lowest port state detention statistics of any classification society for a number of years.
DNV is authorised to issue statutory certificates by more than 100 flag administrations and works closely with the leading flag states.
DNV has a long history as a technology leader within the maritime industry. Our extensive range of strong in-house resources, including state of-the-art laboratories, has enabled us to be at the forefront of development of new technology and designs.
DNV has a global network of offices strategically concentrated close to its customers for optimum speed and service. You will find a DNV office in all major shipping centres, with managers and surveyors that are technically competent and authorised to make most decisions locally.
We work closely with the shipowners’ technical and newbuilding departments, ship designers, shipyards and our own site personnel to ensure that the vessels meet and exceed owners’ expectations.
DNV’s Customer Service Management (CSM) concept makes it easy for our clients to have access to DNV and our world wide resources. The customer service manager provides a single point of contact for your convenience, ensuring quick and efficient service.
Our highly qualified surveyors have a keen awareness of the owners’ needs.
DNV Exchange® provides online access to updated class information about your fleet – anywhere, anytime.
We have developed highly efficient software to support design for yards and inspections and maintenance for ship owners. Within DNV, we use unique Nauticus software to keep track of all information accumulated through surveys, and to share and manage the knowledge we gain.
