Certification of Material and Equipment

​RINA SERVICES performs certification of material and equipment associated with safe and efficient maritime transportation and pollution prevention, in accordance with national and international safety standards and with our own Rules for Classification of Ships. We provide formal documentary evidence that a specific material or product complies with all specified requirements, and attest to the quality of the product and to the manufacturer’s capability and reputation.
Thanks to our long tradition in the certification of products and services, we have attained a widely acknowledged level of expertise and skills in these specific areas, and have developed a comprehensive, strategic international network of Offices to provide prompt and specific responses to client requests.
