Newbuilding surveys

We offer the full range of classification services and statutory certification for every newbuilding as well as expert support.

As a ship owner, how do you know that your newbuilding is being constructed in accordance with all the rules and regulations relevant to the vessel type?

As a competent and independent third party, we provide support to both shipowners and shipyards during all newbuilding phases. We not only aim to safeguard life, property and the environment – we also help to ensure that the vessel complies with all relevant rules and regulations.

Our experienced and competent surveyors examine those parts of the ship covered by classification rules and statutory regulations. They witness inspections and tests during new construction and sea trials, and they review and appraise manufacturing, construction, control and qualification procedures of the shipyard. This is performed in order to obtain appropriate evidence that the vessel has been built in compliance with the rules and regulations, based on the respective approved drawings.

  • Hull structures and structural outfittings
