ClassNK establishes 'Rules for the Survey and Construction of Governmental and Naval Ships'
(TOKYO) — Classification society 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 defense 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. "Rules for the Survey and Construction of Governmental and Naval Ships" contributes to the progress of the overseas transfer of defense equipment.
The rules 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 via ClassNK’s website, www.classnk.com, for those who have registered for the ClassNK “My Page” service. To register for the “My Page” service free of charge, go to the ClassNK website and click on the “My Page Login” button.
