EN 12079 : 2006 Offshore containers and associated lifting

In 1991, the European Committee for Standardization, CEN, started developing a European Standard (EN) on offshore containers. The committee prepared EN 12079 which was originally issued in 1999 and revised and replaced with 2006 edition. The requirements for design, testing and production of offshore containers in EN 12079 are directly based on DNV Standard for Certification 2.7-1.

EN 12079 consists of three parts. See Table 1-1 for reference. Offshore containers and lifting sets certified to comply with DNV 2.7-1 also comply fully with EN 12079 parts 1 and 2. This is reflected on our container offshore certificates
