ABS announced it was assigned Recognized Organization (RO) status by the Canadian Department of National Defense (DND).

ABS is now authorized to survey non-combatant vessels and undertake certification activities in key hazard areas identified by the Naval Ship Code.

"ABS was selected as the exclusive classification organization for all non-combatant vessels in service with the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) in 2017 before expanding our class and certification services to the entire Canadian Coast Guard fleet in 2018-and now we have been assigned RO status by the DND," said James Watson, ABS Senior Vice President, Global Government.

ABS will provide classification services for the Kingston-class and the Orca-class ships, the Auxiliary vessels plus the new Arctic and Offshore Patrol Ships and future Joint Support Ships.
