DET NORSKE VERITAS (DNV) is an autonomous and independent foundation with the objectives of safeguarding life, prop-erty and the environment, at sea and onshore. DNV undertakes classification, certification, and other verification and consultancyservices relating to quality of ships, offshore units and installations, and onshore industries worldwide, and carries out researchin relation to these functions.DNV Offshore Codes consist of a three level hierarchy of documents: — 
Offshore Service Specifications.
Provide principles and procedures of DNV classification, certification, verification and con-sultancy services. — 
Offshore Standards.
Provide technical provisions and acceptance criteria for general use by the offshore industry as well asthe technical basis for DNV offshore services. — 
 Recommended Practices.
Provide proven technology and sound engineering practice as well as guidance for the higher levelOffshore Service Specifications and Offshore Standards.DNV Offshore Codes are offered within the following areas:A)Qualification, Quality and Safety MethodologyB)Materials TechnologyC)StructuresD)SystemsE)Special FacilitiesF)Pipelines and RisersG)Asset OperationH)Marine OperationsJ)Cleaner EnergyO)Subsea Systems

Main changes April 2010
 —Information on standard deviation in the S-N curves isincluded. —A modified S-N curve for small diameter umbilicals isincluded. —The section on qualification of new S-N curves isextended. Some guidance on assessment of a design S-Ncurve based on a limited number of test data is given. —A new section on requirements to NDE and acceptancecriteria is included. —The section on stress concentration factors for square tosquare joints is revised. —A new section on analysis of connectors is included. —The section on stress concentration factors for girth weldsin tubular sections and pipelines is extended with exam- ples of practical use in the commentary section. —A more clear definition of nominal stresses in pipes and pipelines is made. —Some new expressions for stress concentration factors for tubular T-joints in frame structures are included that areconsidered to reduce engineering work and improve thereliability of fatigue analysis. —The section on fatigue assessment of penetrations in platedstructures is extended and made more general for purposeof combining capacity assessment with finite elementanalysis where penetrations are not part of the finite ele-ment model. —The section on requirements to grinding for fatigue lifeimprovement is extended. —A section on low cycle fatigue in combination with highcycle fatigue is included in the commentary section. —The reference list is revised and new references areincluded. —Some text has been revised to improve readability.
