Setting Standards of Excellence

The responsibility of the classification society is to verify that marine vessels and offshore structures comply with Rules that the society has established for design, construction and periodic survey.

The classification process includes:

  • the development of standards, known as Rules
  • technical plan review and design analysis
  • surveys during construction
  • source inspection of materials, equipment and machinery
  • acceptance by the Classification Committee
  • subsequent periodic surveys for maintenance of class
  • survey of damage, repairs and modifications

Offering Practical Solutions

ABS recognizes that the classification world is changing with more emphasis on complex structures, life cycle management, unified standards and safety equivalencies.

At ABS, we are dedicated to providing leadership in the development of new technologies intended to improve the safety standards for the marine and offshore industries.
