Approved service supplier

Roxtec Services meet classification society requirements.

New and updated sections of the unified requirements of IACS, the International Association of Classification Societies, relate to inspection of watertight cable transits. Since 2020, they include procedural requirements for approved service suppliers. At Roxtec, we provide safety inspection services for cable and pipe transits since many years, and Roxtec Services now hold certification as approved service supplier by several classification societies.

Being appointed approved service supplier is yet another step for us in our strive for improving safety onboard ships and offshore units all over the world. We strongly believe that increased safety awareness and an understanding of cable and pipe transits as integrated parts of a ship or unit during construction and in operation, will help limit accidents and protect people, equipment, and systems.
