If any person suffers loss or damage which is proved to have been caused by any negligent act or omission of Det Norske Veritas, then Det Norske Veritas shall pay compensation to such personfor his proved direct loss or damage. However, the compensation shall not exceed an amount equal to ten times the fee charged for the service in question, provided that the maximum compen-sation shall never exceed USD 2 million.In this provision "Det Norske Veritas" shall mean the Foundation Det Norske Veritas as well as all its subsidiaries, directors, officers, employees, agents and any other acting on behalf of DetNorske Veritas.
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)Wind TurbinesO)Subsea Systems

Amended October 2009Offshore Standard DNV-OS-E301, October 2008see note on front coverChanges Page 3
Being class related, this document is published electronicallyonly (as of October 2008) and a printed version is no longer available. The update scheme for this category of documents isdifferent compared to the one relevant for other offshore doc-uments (for which printed versions are available).For an overview of all types of DNV offshore documents andtheir update status, see the “Amendments and Corrections”document located at: http://webshop.dnv.com/global/, under category “Offshore Codes”.This document supersedes the previous edition dated October 2004.
Main changes as of October 2008:
 —References to the following documents included: —DNV-RP-F205 "Global Performance of Deepwater Floating Structures". —DNV-RP-E303 "Geotechnical Design and Installationof Suction Anchors". —DNV-RP-E304 "Damage Assessment of Fibre Ropesfor Offshore Mooring". —Reference to CN 30.5 replaced by ref. to: DNV-RP-C205"Environmental Conditions and -Loads". —Correction of errors and misprints.
Ch.1 Sec.1
 —A200 Soft yoke systems included.
Ch.2 Sec.1
 —Design requirements regarding complex environmentalconditions included, such as West Africa. —Detailed description of how typical squall conditions shall be documented, and applied - in mooring system design. —API wind spectrum removed; replaced with a recommen-dation to use the NPD/ISO wind spectrum. —For water depths smaller than 100 m, finite depth effectshall be included in the wave frequency motions (RAOs).
Ch.2 Sec.2
B. Method
 —Chain quality R5 included. —Description of 'time domain' and 'frequency domain' -mooring analyses. —Guidance regarding duration and extreme value estima-tion for time domain analyses, given. —Description of coupled analysis. —Requirements to yoke systems and other type of mooringsystems without redundancy. —Item B600 "Refined response analysis" deleted (since'time domain' approach now included).
 —Requirements to mooring line buoyancy elements (MBLE).In ALS condition: consequences if MBLE disappear.
F. Fatigue Limit state
 —more specific requirements regarding documentation of combined tension-bending fatigue of chain links.
G. Fatigue Limit Sate (FLS) for Fibre Ropes
 —FLS for fibre ropes brought inline with the new revision of DNV-OS-E303 (previous DNV Certification Note 2.13).
Ch.2 Sec.3
 —In item A208, a new Guidance note concerning common practice on utilizing thrust effect, has been added
D. System requirements.
 —When redundancy required, there must be two independ-ent reference systems.
Ch.2 Sec.4
 —Technical requirements to buoyancy elements included.
C. Fluke Anchors
 —Requirements to anchor resistance for permanent andmobile mooring with respect to fluke and plate anchorsattempted clarified, also how the load and capacity of theanchoring system, are calculated.
H. Mooring Chain and Accessories
 —Most of this sub-section replaced with a reference to thenew DNV-OS-E302. —Offshore mooring chain of grade R5 included.
I. Steel Wire Ropes
 —Requirements to steel wire ropes replaced by a referenceto DNV-OS-E304. (This latter standard will probably not be ready by October 2008, targeted date of issuance for this standard, and thus "old" Certification Note 2.5 may beapplied, meanwhile.)
J. Synthetic Fibre Ropes
 —Requirements to Fibre ropes replaced by reference toDNV-OS-E303.
K. Windlasses, Winches, and Chain Stoppers
 —Divided requirement for temporary and emergence moor-ing, and that of mobile mooring.Windlasses for temporary and emergency mooring on DP-units shall fulfil DNV Rules for Classification of Ships. —Gear for windlass or winch included. —Table K3 deleted. A reference to Table D3 in DNV-OS-C101 included. —Calculating the capacity for dynamic braking, included.
L. Fairleads
 —Requirements to fatigue assessment of fairlead and sup- porting structure are also required for Mobile Units.
O. Arrangement and Devices for Towing
 —Clarifying the requirements to towing equipment.
P. Tension Measuring Equipment
 —Requirements to equipment and sampling of data included.
Ch.2 Sec.5
 —Shop tests and tests after installation - for winches, wind-lasses and stoppers updated. —Testing of Fibre ropes referenced to: DNV-OS-E303.
Ch.3 Sec.1 and 2
 —General updating according to other, technical parts of thestandard. —Documentation requirements regarding analysis fo
notation included. —Reference to DNV-OSS-101 and 102 regarding inspectionduring operation. —Requirements i.conn.w. re-construction of a Unit (due toincreased wind- and current exposed areas, changes inRAO’s and drift force coefficients).
*)This change description has been modified in May 2009. The originalchange description (as stated in October 2008) proposing a reduction inapplied capacity for thruster assisted mooring from 100% to 90%, wasincorrect, and actually not implemented in the document.
