International Register of Shipping has signed another international bilateral agreement of collaboration. The agreement with Ships Classification Malaysia (SCM) will enhance safety and security in navigation and help prevent marine pollution, as well as promote technical and educational cooperation and encourage joint ventures in ship survey.
"We have agreed to co-operate in both the ships classification services and non-classification services,” says Said Nassif, managing director of International Register of Shipping, who augmented the established group seeking to finalize the agreement. "We are very pleased to be working closely with SCM - this reinforces our commitment to transparency and quality in the maritime industry. It's only by continuing to strive for fairness in the maritime world that we can ensure that our industry remains competitive."
