The American Bureau of Shipping
The American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) is a classification society, with a mission to promote the security of life, property and the natural environment, primarily through the development and verification of standards for the design, construction and operational maintenance of marine-related facilities.
At the end of 2012, ABS was the second largest class society with a classed fleet of nearly 12,000 commercial vessels and offshore facilities. ABS’ core service is the provision of classification services through the development of standards called ABS Rules. These Rules form the basis for assessing the design and construction of new vessels and the integrity of existing vessels and marine structures.
DNV GL is an international certification body and ship and offshore classification society, with main locations in Norway and Germany. DNV GL is the result of the 2013 merger between DNV and Germanischer Lloyd. The merged company has 16,000 employees. DNV GL operates in various different industries, with a focus on testing, certification, technical assurance and risk management.
DNV GL has the objective of “Safeguarding life, property, and the environment”.

Germanischer Lloyd was founded in Hamburg in 1867.
DNV GL describes itself as a provider of services for managing risk. Important industries where the company operates include ship transport, energy (including wind and solar), aviation, automotive, finance, food, health care, and information technology.

GOST refers to a set of technical standards maintained by the Euro-Asian Council for Standardization, Metrology and Certification (EASC), a regional standards organization operating under the auspices of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).
All sorts of regulated standards are included, with examples ranging from charting rules for design documentation to recipes and nutritional facts of Soviet-era brand names (which have now become generic, but may only be sold under the label if the technical standard is followed, or renamed if they are reformulated).
The first body for standardization was created by the Council of Labor and Defense in 1925 and was named the Committee for Standardization. Its main objective was development and introduction of the Union standards OST standards. The first OST standards gave the requirements for iron and ferrous metals, selected sorts of wheat, and a number of consumer goods.
