DNV Type Approval renewed for MPMWin

U.K based Marine Software Ltd is pleased to announce that following a successful Type Approval renewal process by DNV, the Marine Planned Maintenance for Windows ('MPMWin') complies with 'DNV GL class programme DNVGL-CP-0206 – Type approval – Machinery planned maintenance system (MPMS), DNV GL rules for classification – Ships'

The MPMWIN has been awarded 'Type Approval Certificate' No. TAPMS000000A REV 1 which is valid to 27 June 2026.

DNV Type Approval

Depending on the survey arrangement the vessel is on, the surveyor will adjust the scope according to it. At the moment DNV has 4 survey arrangements for machinery which are:-

  1. Machinery Renewal
  2. Machinery Continuous
  3. Machinery PMS
  4. Machinery CBM

For 1. and 2. the surveyor will carry out component surveys (inspect, open up, test, etc.) and credit machinery list items after that. Whether or not a component is the PMS is not really relevant, the information there is only supplementary to the survey scope.

For 3. and 4. the surveyor will carry out a system survey (audit of the PMS) and credit the annual system survey accordingly (i.e. MPMS.A or MCBM.A), not individual items. For this purpose “all” maintenance carried out on class components is subject to review, not only one job or routine.
