Lloyd's Register Touts ShipRight Procedures, Rulefinder Database

Lloyd's Register recently held a briefing in New York City to present the safety benefits of its ShipRight design, construction and lifetime ship care procedures, and the advantages of its Rulefinder interactive database system, for shipping executives. Speaking on the ShipRight comprehensive measures for ensuring safety throughout a vessel's life, John Ferguson, manager, technical planning and development department, said: "These procedures supplement and support our classification service...they extend well beyond the normal mandatory requirements for hull classification." He continued: "ShipRight takes into account factors such as the widespread use of high tensile steels, optimization of hull structures and the need to ensure adequate general and fatigue strength in the new generation of double hull oil tankers and other large, complex ships." Rulefinder is an interactive CDROM database system which makes finding relevant classification and statutory requirements a quick and easy task. "This system also contributes towards greater vigilance and safety," said John Rugg, manager, marine marketing and business group. "By guiding the users through the vast volume of marine regulations, it will help to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of surveys."
