RINA Launches Corrosion Prevention and Coatings Program

Friday, October 05, 2007
RINA joined forces with UK-based coatings testing company Bodycote to launch a global Corrosion Prevention and Coatings (CPC) program. The heart of the program will be a CPC Training Course for shipyard and shipowner staff, and testing facilities for type approval of coatings according to the new IMO requirements. The first courses will be launched in Korea in January 2008, with further courses in China beginning in March. Thereafter courses will be run world wide, as part of RINA's services to owners that go beyond classification. The first coating testing facility approved in accordance with IMO PSPC requirements and IACS PR34 has been established in the Bodycote Laboratory in Manchester, UK and further facilities worldwide are planned in the coming months.
