Shipping classification



Ship approvals


The Institute for International Product Safety GmbH offers ship suppliers the opportunity to have their products approved by worldwide ship registers and certifiers in order to position their electrical and electronic components on the international market. With comprehensive technical testing services and the established approval management of I2PS, our customers are able to achieve rapid certification of their products.


The major performance components of I²PS:

Approval Management

We manage the communication regarding the approval with the shipping register requested by the client. Our trained and highly qualified specialists will draw up a test plan tailored to your product based on the identified requirements for approval by the shipping registers.

Technical testing services

With specialized test facilities we carry out independent tests in the areas of EMC, climate and degree of protection tests. After passing the test, we prepare the documentation required by the certifiers in the form of test reports.

Downstream approval management after approval

The approval of a product is usually valid for 5 years. Through our product-specific downstream approval management, we protect our customers from a costly production stop or withdrawal of approval by timely extension or amendment of the approval certificates.



I2PS is recognized by all major ship classification societies in the field of environmental and EMC testing.
