CLASSNK PUBLISHES NEW NAVAL VESSEL SURVEY AND CONSTRUCTION RULES

Tuesday, March 31, 2020 

ClassNK has established its 'Rules for the Survey and Construction of Governmental and Naval Ships', technical rules that are applied to governmental ships and their onboard equipment.

During the overseas transfer of defence equipment including governmental ships and their onboard machinery, the equipment may be subject to third-party quality inspections requested by foreign authorities. Under these circumstances, ClassNK has established standards for conducting third-party certification of governmental and naval ships and their onboard equipment as its Rules for the Survey and Construction of Governmental and Naval Ships to contribute to the progress of the overseas transfer of defencce equipment.

The Rules for the Survey and Construction of Governmental and Naval Ships incorporate the knowledge and the latest technology that the Society has cultivated over many years through its classification business, and enable risk-based safety assessment and condition based maintenance, making them effective for not only ensuring reasonable quality, but also reducing ship life cycle costs.

The rules are available in the “Technical Rules and Guidance” section, to registered users of ClassNK’s website.
