As part of its history and tradition, ship classification is one of the core businesses of RINA.

In addition to its consolidated ties to the recreational craft sector, RINA UK offers a wide range of integrated services to numerous partners: from cruise ships and ro-ro to container ships, from bulk carriers to the entire offshore segment.

Its application of international standards, as well as the consolidated professionalism of RINA UK, is recognized by one hundred flag maritime administrations.


The goal of classification services is to approve the operations of ships and to maintain this authorisation over time by carrying out periodic inspections and laboratory tests. Classification enables sector operators to achieve the highest standards of quality and efficiency in the phases of vessel design, construction and commissioning.

RINA UK puts innovative solutions at the centre of these services, to ensure the safety and protection of people and property, as well as lower consumption and environmental impact for the widest range of vessels. This is not merely to comply with compulsory standards and laws in force; it is a real opportunity to market transportation services with a great competitive edge.
