To our esteemed shareholders and customers:
An imperative part of our Emirati Heritage is the origin of our ancestors as seafarers, pearl divers and commercial tradesmen. The pride taken in our culture has given us the incentive and honor to establish Tasneef in 2012 as the first UAE Classification Society in the GCC and the Arab world.
To ensure the viability of the crucial maritime domain for the United Arab Emirates, our leadership recognized the need to establish a national classification society to protect our ports and waterways, guarantee our maritime prosperity, and safeguard our environment and seafarers through our professional services.
Tasneef’s goals are to establish a professional and ideal reputation across our local, regional and international business lines and to be an active member of the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS).
The UAE is recognized as a hub for its modern maritime facilities and a supplier of energy resources to the world. With the increasing demand of energy efficiencies, and environmental protection initiatives, Tasneef will be the leading classification society in the UAE and the region to accomplish those tasks through its professional services.
Our fundamental values entail that our responsibility and promises to our clients and shareholders are attained with excellence. Therefore, we have assembled a group of the finest employees, diligently screened for their competencies and abilities to conduct our businesses, expand in areas of need for the UAE’s interest, and to grow our company worldwide, all the while investing in Emirati human capital.
We assure that our partners in the private and public sectors work together to achieve safe standards that protect ship-owners, seafarers, and our environment.
Thank you for your interest in Tasneef and we look forward to working with you, our partners and customers.
Rashed Al Hebsi
Chief Executive Officer Emirates Classification Society (Tasneef)
