Your DNV GL-classed ship requires an official document to certify its class status – whether you need to prove compliance with class requirements, want to sell your ship or lead negotiations with insurance companies.

We provide the official document to certify that your DNV GL-classed vessel is or has been in class and that it meets or met the class requirements at a given time or period of time.

The class declaration is normally a self-contained statement, but may include copies of survey reports and certificates.

  • Sale declarationsInsurance declarations
  • Register declarations
  • Oil major declarations
  • Newbuilding declarations
  • Unmanned machinery space (E0) declarations
  • Segregated Ballast Tanks (SBT) declarations

  • Confirm to a prospective buyer that the conditions stipulated in the contract have been met
