If your firm performs Non-Destructive Examination activities in support of surveys on ABS classed vessels, this is outside the scope of this service. Instead, please submit this form to apply for ABS External Specialist Certification. ABS maintains an Approved Material Manufacturers database which contains approvals. If your firm is a steel mill, heat treatment facility, welding consumable manufacturer, aluminum mill, casting facility, forges and foundry, or some process approval specific to material fabrication, these are also outside the scope of the Service. Instead please contact your ABS port office to apply for an ABS Materials Manufacturer Certification.
