The Korean Register of Shipping (KR) and the Danish Maritime Authority (DMA) signed an agreement on December 20, 2013 enabling the Korean classification society to survey and certify Danish ships. This brings the total number of countries where KR is authorized to carry out ship survey and certification work to 66.


KR, in accordance with this agreement, is now able to carry out relevant surveys, audits and issue certificates to Danish and Greenland ships for SOLAS, MARPOL, ITC, ILL, ISM, ISPS, and MLC.
 


All exemption certification relating to surveys will also be issued by KR, after acquiring prior approval from the government of Denmark.
 


KR has been issuing certificates to Danish ships for inspection and examination of ITC (International Tonnage Certificate) since 1998.



KR Chairman & CEO, Chon Young-kee said, “This long-term cooperation agreement is the starting point for developing a further cooperative relationship with Denmark. KR has been receiving new international authorizations at the rate of three or four a year, and we hope to sign further agreements in 2014.”
