RINA S.p.A. is the operative organisation of Registro Italiano Navale in the sector of ship classification, certification and control and services for industry, training, assistance and research. RINA has operated as an international certification body since 1989, as a direct consequence of its historic commitment to save human life at sea, safeguard property and protect the marine environment in the interest of all its stakeholders, as established in its Statute and transferring its experience to other fields as well. RINA's mission is to raise the quality level on the market as it is aware that measures to enhance safety, protect the environment and minimise social impact can only add to the value of organisations that adopt them.

SHIP CLASSIFICATION The classification and certification of ships has been the "core business" of RINA ever since it was established in 1861. Since then, RINA has constantly developed technical partnerships in the shipping sector. These include technological support during the design stage, construction surveillance, ship management and technical assistance during maintenance. The objective is to help ship owners and shipyards to achieve elevated standards of quality and safety. 
In today's increasingly more attentive and demanding market, the certification procedure, in which a third party gives written assurance that a product/service of an organisation complies with specified requirements, is a tool of great economic and social utility. Certification, in fact, has a dual purpose: firstly, it allows consumers to choose on the basis of objective parameters and to facilitate their purchase decisions, and secondly, it helps certified organisations to use shared and unified reference standards in order to rationalise and simplify their activities and to add value to their overall activities. The strategic importance of certification lies in the fact that it maximises the commitment of an organisation and protects it from unqualified competition.
Risk Management
Risk management involves ensuring that the main risks inherent in each activity are recognised and managed by means of a systematic process of elimination, reduction, transfer and control. RINA assists customers by providing services aimed at identifying, assessing, managing and financially controlling the risks of each activity. Risk management is based on the following logical process:
Hazard identification
Definition and quantification of risk scenarios
Risk management and control by implementing countermeasures
The final objective, therefore, is to achieve what is known as residual risk, namely, the remaining risks which the company decides to maintain and manage internally. Risk reduction is achieved by performing activities aimed at eliminating, wherever possible, minimising and transferring the total risk identified during the initial analysis and quantification stage
Technical Advisory
Acceleration in technological innovation processes, operative and financial problems and constantly changing legislation have generated new professional and management needs in the technical advisory sector.Thanks to its planning, problem-solving and decision-making skills, combined with its capacity for analysis and synthesis, the RINA Group can help customers to achieve their objectives. RINA addresses these challenges by fielding a team of professionals providing support to customers throughout the development process of each project, including the definition of strategies and legal and legislative processes, the provision of services, risk management, technical supervision and certification.
The RINA Test Laboratory was established in 1965 as the Fire Research Laboratory with the purpose of giving the industry, mainly Italian at that time, a site where materials involved in the structural fire protection of ships could be tested in accordance with the applicable national and international testing procedures and standards.Following the international development of RINA activities, the Fire Research Laboratory has gained, during these years, a worldwide reputation as one of the most competent laboratories for the performance of fire tests for marine applications.Indeed, the RINA Test Laboratory has been indicated by the IMO as national reference laboratory for tests in connection with the International Code for Application of Fire Test Procedures (FTP Code) which contains the requirements for test laboratories and the test procedures applicable for the purpose of certifying materials for which the international Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS 74) foresees specific fire resistance or reaction characteristics
Inspections and Audit
Today, more than ever, with the arrival of globalisation and increasingly more aggressive competition, it has become vital for all market players to assure and increase the efficiency and effectiveness of their company processes.In this context, inspections and audits are recognised as being capable of ensuring that the results of each organisational or production processes satisfy design requirements.Thanks to its experience in the world of certification and its close collaboration with leading organisations in the sector, RINA has developed sufficient technical skills to allow it to offer an extensive range of product and process audits for the purpose of constantly improving quality levels.Thanks to its numerous accreditations as an inspection and certification body and its international network, RINA can rapidly provide qualified and specialised technical staff in every sector it operates in.
