HØVIK, Norway –DNV GL has launched a new “Standard for Certification of Subsea Equipment and Components” with the goal of improving quality control and efficiency.

The DNV GL standard aims to help interpret API and ISO standards, and the certificate will provide operators with confidence that fabrication quality is controlled and assured throughout the industry’s complex and distributed value chain.

“For operators, it will reduce costs without sacrificing quality, innovation or safety and subsequently shorten lead times. For suppliers, it will increase predictability and enable the strategic stocking of long-lead items,” said Bjørn Søgård, Segment Director for Subsea at DNV GL – Oil & Gas.
