DNV Garners Additional USCG Authorization

Thursday, August 10, 2000
Det Norske Veritas (DNV) is now cleared by the U.S. Coast Guard to administer the following certificates: SOLAS Cargo Ship Safety Construction Certificate; SOLAS Cargo Ship Safety Equipment Certificate; and International Safety Management (ISM) Code (DOC and SMC). Additionally, DNV is collaborating with the Coast Guard on other statutory certificates the Coast Guard may delegate, such as: International Certificates of Fitness for Carrying Liquefied Gases and Hazardous Chemicals in Bulk; Mobile Offshore Drill Unit International Safety Certificate; and MARPOL International Oil Pollution Prevention Certificate for Carrying Noxious Liquid Substances in Bulk.

Until late 1996, the U.S. Administration delegated only U.S. and International Tonnage certificates to Recognized Organizations. Now, the USCG May delegate statutory functions to classification societies that meet a set of demanding requirements.
