DNV GL is an international certification body and classification society with main expertise in technical assessment, advisory, and risk management. It was created in 2013 as a result of a merger between two leading organizations in the field – Det Norske Veritas (Norway) and Germanischer Lloyd (Germany).
DNV GL is the world’s largest classification society for vessels and mobile offshore units. The organization is also a reference in renewable, alternative and conventional energy. It is the world’s largest technical consultancy to onshore and offshore wind, wave, tidal, and solar industries, as well as the global oil & gas industry – 65% of the world’s offshore pipelines are designed and installed to DNV GL’s technical standards.
