Tasneef Naval Vessel Classification Services


Tasneef offers a comprehensive portfolio of classification services to designers, builders and operators of Naval, Coast Guard and government vessels.

Naval vessel Classification is a voluntary choice of a Navy which aims to quality, safety and cost effectiveness for the building and management of its ships. Tasneef can represent a primary technical partner for Navies and Shipyards.
Tasneef Naval Vessel Classification Services can provide classification and technical advisory services for all types of naval vessels and fast patrol vessels, ranging from small RIBs up to aircraft carriers, passing through patrol vessels, corvettes, frigates, Landing Platform Dock, fleet tankers and mine countermeasure vessels.

Tasneef Naval Vessel Classification Services has developed two sets of rules for the classification of military ships:

  • Rules for the classification of Naval Ships, which are intended for the classification of steel ships, auxiliary and combatant, starting from corvettes and upwards
  • Rules for the Classification of Fast Patrol Vessels, which are intended for the classification of high speed ships up to 65 m and built in steel, aluminium alloy or composite materials.


Tasneef Naval Vessel Classification Services can be broken into three distinct parts:

  1. Plan Review and Approval.
  2. Surveys During Construction (New Building).
  3. Surveys After Construction.



  • Public demonstration of the quality and safety policy adopted by the Navy for its ships and crews
  • Classification rules tailored on the specific needs of the Navy and periodically updated, in order to not impair the operability of ships
  • Flexibility and possibility of additional customization (e.g. use of alternative standards)
  • Cost reduction, due to the possible use of Commercial Off-The-Shelf materials, where there is no specific need to adopt materials designed in accordance with military standards
  • Support Navies and Shipyards since from the preliminary design through the whole ship life, both for platform and combat system.
