Ship Classification Society

Ship Classification SocietyClassification is carried out according to the principles verified and approved by International practices and consists of execution of technical requirements as per rules and guides.

Ascent Navals confirm the compliance of rules and guides through regular survey schemes carried out to ships and all types of marine structures and issue the appropriate certificate of class and enters the ship into flag of registry.

Classification is a comprehensive verification service providing assurance that a set of requirements laid down in rules and standards established by the classification society are met during design and construction, and maintained during operation. The rules and standards are aimed at ensuring safety against hazards to the ship, personnel, and against hazards to the environment.

As a Classification Society, ASCENT NAVALS THAILAND offers a range of services to vessels and marine structures of all types. Our goal is to safeguard the preservation of life, property and the marine environment while ensuring that vessel operators have the flexibility to maximize their resources.

In accordance with international rules and regulations, Class-ANT has established technical requirements regarding the design, construction, and survey of ships. A Certificate of Classification documents that the inspected vessel complies with the technical requirements specified in A.N.T. Rules.

A.N.T. conducts the necessary surveys according to the client needs and the applicable rules, issues the appropriate Certificate of Classification, and enters the ship into the Register of Ships. A.N.T.  then ensures that a vessel is in compliance with international and local regulatory requirements through periodic surveys.

A.N.T.  bases its rules on international standards, IACS unified requirements and interpretation that are proven to assist you in managing marine risk. Our rules and procedures, streamlined and simplified through years of research, reflect our proactive, forward-looking approach to risk management.
