LR becomes first foreign class society authorised to survey Japan-flagged ships

Tokyo: During a ceremony held yesterday in Tokyo, Lloyd's Register was confirmed as the first foreign classification society to be formally authorised by the Japanese government to carry out surveys on ships flying the Japanese flag.
Under Japanese legislation, Lloyd's Register has been designated as a Recognised Organisation by the Japanese government and is granted delegated responsibility for statutory surveys and permission to issue statutory certificates.
Prior to the authorisation of Lloyd's Register, only ClassNK, the domestic classification society and fellow IACS member, has held such recognition.  [14/05/10]
