FORCE Technology performs advisory services and accredited type testing of many kinds of marine products such as navigation equipment, alarm and control systems, sensors and ballast water monitoring systems.

We offer to assist you during the entire development phase by drawing up detailed requirement and test specifications, performing design reviews, contacting Classification Societies and authorities, etc.

Why perform maritime tests at FORCE Technology?

For more than 25 years, FORCE Technology has built up extensive know-how within design, testing and approval of maritime electronics. We work in collaboration with all the leading classification societies.

FORCE Technology performs electrical, mechanical, climatic and functional tests of maritime products to form the necessary basis for approvals in accordance with relevant requirements of most maritime standards such as IEC 60945, IACS E10, IEC 60533 supplemented by requirements from Classification Societies and authorities like DNV-GL, Lloyd’s Register, Russian Maritime Register of Shipping, ABS, and US Coast Guard.

EU RO Mutual Recognition test of maritime products

Classification societies with EU Recognised Organisation (EU RO) status mutually recognize class certificates for materials, equipment, and components, e.g. temperature gauges – transmitters, pressure gauges – transmitters and display monitors or video screens that are also input devices. The mutual recognition is based on equivalent standards, taking the most demanding and rigorous standards as reference, i.e. EU RO Mutual Recognition Technical Requirements.
