Emirates Classification Society Tasneef has completed the first half of its third year with significant achievements in classification services that are tailored to the needs of the Arab world.
Commenting on Tasneef’s achievements, Eng. Rashed Al Hebsi, CEO of Tasneef said: “We are blessed to have achieved a wide acceptance in the Arab maritime community as the first Arab classification society, and we are considered the accredited society for issuing compliance certificates in accordance with GCC standards.
"We also signed an agreement with Jordan, which currently accredits our classification services in all areas pertaining to inspection, consulting and training and we are about to sign a direct agreement with Egypt. Our visit to the Arab League represents a step towards being fully accredited by all Arab countries.”
Al Hebsi added: “In Tasneef we recognise that sustainability in the development of the maritime sector lies in building national caliber. Thus, we launched Tasneef Maritime Academy to be a reference point in the region for all those who are interested in a career in inspection and maritime classification. The Academy also aims to develop the technical caliber by working with several companies operating in the region, reducing training costs and the need to hire additional foreign consultants.”
