Certification of certain type facilities, components or sub-components is recommended
and is sometimes mandatory. Elevators, Graving Drydocks, Crane and Railroad Track-
age, Boilers and Unfired Pressure Vessels, Hyperbaric Facilities require certification.
Information regarding certification requirements of these areas is in respective NAV-
FAC Maintenance and Operations (MO) Manuals or instructions. The Certification
