Offshore container recertification | Offshore tank recertification
The mandatory code requirements for recertification of offshore equipment can often be challenging.

We regularly engage with multiple approval agencies, including DNV-GL, Lloyds Register, ABS, BV, RSA and NSAI. Suretank offers customers assistance and expertise for this important process.
Did you know:
- The period and scope of recertification depends on the product. For example, all offshore containers must be recertified annually. All tanks must be certified every 2.5 years. This task represents a significant but necessary logistical challenge.
- It is the responsibility of the owner or an appointed representative to retain current certification for each container, to arrange for periodic inspection, to record substantial repairs, modifications or changes in identification, and to maintain adequate records to ensure traceability. For transport containers, the main codes to be considered are DNV 2.7-1 and IMDG. All tanks and containers must undergo periodic recertification, without exception. Failure to do so may represent a safety risk. The main purpose of the inspections is to demonstrate continued suitability of the container for ongoing use.
- Recertification must involve a notified body, and this can be costly, especially if containers are not certified first time. Suretank regularly provide customers with ongoing technical support to ensure mandatory code compliance when it comes to recertification of Suretank products.
