The merger between standards bodies DNV and GL is official, and the new company, DNV GL, has launched its global brand and website.

The merger was originally announced in December 2012 and approved by competition authorities in September. The group says it comprises more than 16,000 employees in over 100 countries.

"In defining our new identity as DNV GL, our company's vision of making a 'global impact for a safe and sustainable future' has never been more relevant than it is today,” says Henrik O. Madsen, president and CEO of DNV GL Group. “The new brand that we launch today reflects our broader service offering aimed at enabling our customers to make the world safer, smarter and greener.”
