Lloyd’s Register and International Paint Join Forces

Tuesday, May 29, 2007
Lloyd’s Register and International Paint have teamed up to offer shipyards in China step-by-step advice on how to prepare to meet the requirements of the new Performance Standard for Protective Coatings (PSPC) as the industry looks to increase vessel safety and lifecycles by preventing corrosion. This powerful new partnership, which joins the world’s first classification society with the world’s leading producer of marine and protective coatings, has been offering interested Chinese shipyards a free consultancy, or “gap analysis” survey, comparing their current processes for coating a ship’s water ballast tanks to those that will be required under the new PSPC regulations adopted late last year by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). To date, Lloyd’s Register and International Paint (IP) have completed “gap analyses” for four of China’s biggest private and state-owned shipyards and have agreements in place to extend this service to many other leading yards in the country.
