About stiftelsen

Stiftelsen Det Norske Veritas is a free-standing, autonomous and independent foundation whose purpose is to safeguard life, property and the environment. This purpose is achieved through its ownership of companies – of which the most important is the DNV group, a classification, certification and technical assurance and advisory company.

The DNV group was formed following the merger between the classification societies DNV and GL in September 2013. Stiftelsen Det Norske Veritas owns 100% of the DNV group through Det Norske Veritas Holding AS.
