DNV GL announces the acquisition of Noomas Certification

DNV GL has announced the acquisition of NOOMAS Certification (Noomas Sertifisering), a leading Norwegian inspection and certification body within fish farming and equipment.

“Through this acquisition, DNV GL increases its capability and footprint in the aquaculture sector, in particular in Norway which has a strong position in global marine aquaculture. NOOMAS’ technical services targeting the operations of fish farms complement very well our existing portfolio for the aquaculture value chain,” says Luca Crisciotti, CEO in DNV GL – Business Assurance.   “This acquisition will allow us to offer a more comprehensive portfolio of third-party certification services to fish farms and the total aquaculture sector, improving our ability to help the industry in their efforts to become safer and more sustainable.” 

NOOMAS (Noomas Sertifisering) is Norway’s leading inspection and certification body within aquaculture and equipment used within the industry. Their objective is to support aquaculture farms through certification to become safer and more sustainable. With a head office in Bergen and employees along Norway’s long coastline, NOOMAS primarily delivers accredited certification services to help the industry meet regulations and requirements for floating fish farms and related equipment (NYTEK and NS 9415).

“For the DNV GL Group, the acquisition of NOOMAS confirms our strong commitment to grow within the Assurance sector and in particular in the seafood sector, strengthening our brand and positioning. It also underscores our strong commitment to grow our presence in key industries such as the food and beverage industry,” says Renato Grottola, Chief Strategy and M&A Officer, DNV GL.

Founder and CEO of NOOMAS Jon-Terje Lepsøy states: “We are looking forward to being able to serve our customers with the same people and competence but with a broader portfolio and the benefits of a stronger structure and organization. With this move, I am confident that we together can create more value for our customers over time.”
