Classification Society

Clasification societies are organizations who create, publish and maintain standards for ship construction and equipment. A ship whose construction details have been inspected & approved, which uses approved equipment and materials, which passes testing, and maintains a schedule of surveys will be eligable to be registered as "in class" (or "classed") with the issuing classification society.
