ABS announced it was assigned Recognized Organization (RO) status by the Canadian Department of National Defence (DND). ABS is now authorized to survey non-combatant vessels and undertake certification activities in key hazard areas identified by the Naval Ship Code.
“ABS was selected as the exclusive classification organization for all non-combatant vessels in service with the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) in 2017 before expanding our class and certification services to the entire Canadian Coast Guard fleet in 2018—and now we have been assigned RO status by the DND,” said James Watson, ABS Senior Vice President, Global Government. “This latest milestone further strengthens our deep relationship with the Canadian Government and we look forward to working together to advance fleet safety and reliability.”
ABS will provide classification services for the Kingston-class and the Orca-class ships, the Auxiliary vessels plus the new Arctic and Offshore Patrol Ships and future Joint Support Ships.
