Inspection of the marking of offshore installations

Inspection in accordance with WSV framework requirements

Offshore installations are classified as obstacles to navigation by the Federal Waterways and Shipping Administration (WSV) and must be marked as such. In order not to endanger the safety and ease of navigation, the installations must be equipped with visual and radio equipment in accordance with WSV framework specifications.

TÜV NORD is accredited by the DAkkS for testing the WSV framework specifications. As a full-service provider, we can also offer the testing of your DSIS concept by TÜVIT.
