The present DNV OSS, i.e. Offshore Service Specification, is intended to provide readers with the comprehensive overview of the Verification services offered by this Classification Society. The main objectives of this specification are to fully describe the risk-based verification services provided by DNV, provide necessary guidance to ship owners and all other parties involved to let them make proper selection of the involvement level of the verifier, provide a sort of common platform for communication to describe the extent of required verification, and create an opportunity for establishing the efficient, predictable, transparent and, of course, cost effective scheme of verification. This document would apply to verification conducted in the course of the assessment of the owner's control of the process and up to the completion of the asses and during the whole working life of the asset. The specification has been primarily intended to serve as a good reference for onshore/offshore installations and facilities. Apart from the information on principles of risk based verification, the specification provides list and explanation of the verification and certification documents, typical high risk elements, performance requirements etc.
