Established in 1861, RINA is a founding member of IACS (International Association of Classification Societies) and operates on behalf of 122 flag authorities. We provide a wide range of services throughout the complete ship lifecycle. Ship classification has been our core business from the beginning, and today it makes RINA one of the top-ranking marine classification societies in the world.
Decarbonisation will be driving the shipping sector for years to come, and RINA plays a proactive role in this evolution, bringing our multidisciplinary skills to the industry to build a sustainable future. We work with designers to verify compliance with the applicable rules of dual-fuel vessels and of novel concept designs incorporating new fuels such as hydrogen or ammonia, allowing for an increase in efficiency and performance which equates to fewer emissions.
