Marine Approvals

In addition to our ISO 9001:2008 Registration, approvals we hold from Transport Canada (TC), our Underwriters Laboratory of Canada (ULC) Listed Service Shop, and our Underwriters Laboratory of Canada (ULC) Manufacturer of Halon 1301 Fire Extinguishing System Service, Don Brenton’s Fire Protection is proud to hold and maintain Marine Approvals from the following classification societies.

The American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) is one of the world’s leading ship classification societies. The primary purpose of ABS is to determine the structural and mechanical fitness of ships and other marine structures for their intended purpose. It does this through a procedure known as classification.

ABS establishes and administers standards, known as Rules, for the design, construction, and operational maintenance of marine vessels and structures.

Established in 1864, Det Norske Veritas (DNV) is an independent foundation with the objective of safeguarding life, property, and the environment and is a leading international provider of services for managing risk.

DNV is a knowledge-based organisation. Our prime assets are the creativity, knowledge, and expertise of our employees. Most of our 6000 employees are highly qualified engineers and technical personnel.

Whenever it comes to testing, researching and continual improving safety-relevant factors, Germanischer Lloyd is at the forefront. For more than 135 years Germanischer Lloyd (GL) has been offering its services to the shipping industry and setting standards in technology, safety and quality. Over the years, the spectrum of services provided has steadily broadened so that GL ceased to be a pure ship classification society long ago and is now a globally operating technical monitoring group.

The Lloyd’s Register GroupĀ is an independent risk management organisation providing risk assessment and risk mitigation solutions and management systems certification around the world. We work to improve our clients’ quality, safety, environmental and business performance.

Founded in 1760 to examine merchant ships and ‘classify’ them according to their condition, today our expertise and activities extend far wider than the shipping field. In addition to marine activities, we have operations covering management systems, land-based industries, railways, and oil and gas. The Lloyd’s Register Group has more than 200 offices and over 5,000 employees.
