ADAVID's insight:
Det Norske Veritas and Germanischer Lloyd have confirmed they are to merge

The new business, DNV GL Group, will be based in Oslo, but marine operations will be headquartered in Hamburg. The German city is home to GL but is also where DNV has a flourishing office focusing on the German containership market. 
Under the deal, which has yet to be approved by the competition authorities, the DNV Foundation will hold 63.5% of the group and current GL owner Guenter Herz will hold 36.5% through his holding group, Mayfair.
