Classification
societies as name suggests are organizations or agencies (Governmental or non
government), who check the ships and other machinery out there at sea for
standardization. In simple language it can be explained like this:
Suppose if you are
buying a ship, it needs to be checked by someone, so that it falls under the certain
standards. For that you need some registered agency to check it and issue the
required paper work for you.

Well classifications
societies are those registered and worldwide accepted agencies that carry out
this task. In certain key locations in the world, they have their field office
to approve the ships and offshore installation. They are needed to create a
standard in terms of building and operation of vessels and machineries. This is
needed for the safe operations of these floating objects and to remove any
under standardized ships.
