DNV enhances class rules for offshore units
OSLO -- DNV has restructured its offshore classification rules for mobile offshore units in order to improve transparency and enhance safety.
Specifically, the restructured rules provide advantages to all parts of the value chain:
• EFFICIENCY – they enable more efficient production that meets internationally accepted standards without being limited to prescriptive solutions
• RELIABILITY – they provide assurance that the unit meets reliability and safety standards without the burden of unnecessary disputes
• TRANSPARENCY – they create trust that safety and design principles are implemented by following detailed interpretations
The enhanced and restructured format is now open for comments during an external six-week consultation period. Subsequently, DNV will update the standards based on the input received, followed by formal publication.
