For ships over 500 GT in international trade, ISPS certification is mandatory. This requires effective measures for on-going compliance and management of risks through an effective security management system on board.

Backed by our large and comprehensive worldwide network, more than 650 local DNV GL auditors can provide our ISPS Code services at over 300 sites in more than 100 countries. With our commitment to quick decision-making and fast processing times, they work together with you to ensure that the process for your ISPS Code certification is handled efficiently.
