DNV Certification Explained Swire Oilfield Services provides standard, specialized and bespoke products certified to DNV2.7-1 and EN12079 to the worldwide oil and gas market. As more new markets start to demand such high standards with regards the environment and health and safety we are constantly striving to ensure that all our equipment meets the highest standards of certification. Of those certificates are the DNV2.7-1 and BS EN12079-1. In order to gain these certificates, a number of approval and certification procedures have to be followed. First of all, a DNV2.7-1 Certification is the Det Norske Veritas certification. The certification process consists of the following steps: A review of the design Inspection of the prototype and the prototype is also tested Inspection and testing of the production process after these steps are completed, the certification is then issued. But before this happens, an application for certification has to be sent to the DNV office that includes the size, function, and special features of the container, a specification of the standards and regulations that have to be covered, where the offshore containers are manufactured, and how many containers are to be manufactured. If a manufacturer hopes to manufacture just one or a few containers, individual certifications must be issued. However, a manufacturer that intends on manufacturing many of these containers may be issued a “Type Approval Certificate,” which enables the manufacturer to manufacture the same type again and again. There are also other standards for certification that can be met as well. That is where the BS EN12079-1 comes into play. There are two types to this certification: type one and type two. And when an offshore container is used for dangerous goods, it is certified according to what is called the IMDG code. What all of these certification requirements shows is that offshore containers used in the oil industry have to go through some very stringent requirements before they can be used. This is because, although oil is a natural part of the earth, it can contaminate waterways and be detrimental to the natural habitats of sea animals and animals that reside on the shore. This can eventually interfere with the food supply and water supply of people. So you can be rest assured that offshore containers used in the oil industry are made in a way that is very safe and secure.
MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS CERTIFICATION
Choosing an accredited management system certification helps assure clients will get the business benefits and value they pay for. When using an Independent International Organization for Certification (IIOC) member with internationally recognized standards, customers, clients and stakeholders benefit from a highly robust and tested system of assurance. Once certified, management systems benefits include risk mitigation and improved operational efficiency, which leads to better performance, less waste, lower costs, and ultimately, greater profitability. A recent survey conducted by the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) reported that not only is accredited certification being used as a tool to deliver internal business improvement and to meet regulatory compliance, but businesses confirm to have experienced a positive effect on revenue.
As a world-leading certification body, ABS Quality Evaluations, an ABS Group company, we work with companies to assure the performance of their business, systems, people and supply chains through management system certification.
