ABS offers certification services for offshore containers, often at the request of the owner or operator or due to safety regulations mandated by local authorities. To request container certification, a Container Certification Application (CTR AB 200 OC) must be submitted before any ABS engineering and inspection work can begin. You can apply online or obtain a hard copy of the application by contacting the ABS Container Certification Department via e-mail at ABSContainers@eagle.org.
Certification services conducted by ABS cover internationally-recognized agreements, standards and codes related to intermodal and marine containers and their transportation including:
