New guide for offshore container certificationPublications // February 20, 2014
To help resolve some of the questions raised around offshore container certification, LR Energy has produced a new guide, Offshore Container Certification: When, Where and Why.
The guide covers all aspects of container certification including the differences between the two current rule sets.
Currently, there are two standards for offshore containers EN 12079 & DNV 2.7-1 both determining similar criteria for the certification process.
This will soon change as a group of owners, manufacturers and third-party inspection organisations (including ourselves) meet to finalise the a new standard for offshore containers.
The new standard; ISO 10855 will replace EN 12079 and become the main global standard put forth by industry organisation for the safety of the global container industry.
