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 consist of 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 for the specific needs of the Navy ,maintaining full-function operations during orderly and timely updates.
