Description: The purpose of a Classification Society is to provide
classification and statutory services and assistance to
the maritime industry and regulatory bodies as regards
maritime safety and pollution prevention, based on the
accumulation of maritime knowledge and technology.
The objective of ship classification is to verify the
structural strength and integrity of essential parts of
the ship’s hull and its appendages, and the reliability
and function of the propulsion and steering systems,
power generation and those other features and auxiliary
systems which have been built into the ship in order
to maintain essential services on board. Classification
Societies aim to achieve this objective through the
development and application of their own Rules and by
verifying compliance with international and/or national
statutory regulations on behalf of flag Administrations.
