All safety-relevant devices by Böning are classified according to the policies of the ship classification societies. In addition to individual acceptances or type certificates for individual instruments or systems, there are also diverse certifications for various factory acceptance tests. The certificate of a component or system attests to the general conformity with the policies of the respective classification society. For this, extensive tests must be conducted in accredited laboratories. All safety related functionalities are monitored. Every component must meet the predefined requirements for its use. Today, we are in the position to offer integrated systems that are fully tested and approved.
