Further statutory survey and certification services

We offer the entire range of statutory survey and certification services based on the international requirements applicable for DNV-classed ships.

Aside from the main certificates, numerous further certificates are required to provide evidence for compliance with international requirements. New conventions are also anticipated which can be subject to advanced service.

Immediately after the survey on board, we issue the required international certificates for proving the safety of the ship and crew, such as:

  • International Certificate of Fitness Chemicals in Bulk (IBC)
  • Certificate of Fitness Chemicals in Bulk (BCH)
  • International Certificate of Fitness Gases in Bulk (IGC)
