Our Company and it’s history

The Survey Association Ltd. of Copenhagen dates back to 1806, when the first surveyor was appointed by the first privately owned marine insurance company, established in 1786.

The Survey Association was established under its present name in 1914 in order to provide the necessary technical expertise to the leading Danish Hull and Cargo Underwriters.
