Shackles provided by Van Beest are found to comply with:

DNV 2.7-1 Offshore Containers
EN 12079-2 Offshore containers and associated lifting sets
EN 13889 Forged steel shackles for general lifting purposes
IMO/MSC Circular 860
US Federal Specification RR-C-271D
DNV Standard for Certification No. 2.7-3 Portable Offshore Units

The new certificate S-7593 confirms continued compliance of the above mentioned types of shackles with the latest DNV standards. The approval of both the design and the production process make individual testing unnecessary, so it saves you a lot of time and money.
