Today, a total of 149 staff members work for GL Korea, including surveyors and plan approvers, offering services focused on Ship Newbuilding, Classification, Maritime Systems and Components and Fleet in Service.

The new website serves as a platform to showcase GL's major maritime services, such as Ship Newbuilding, Fleet Services, Maritime Systems and Components, and Maritime Solutions. The website also gives existing and potential clients convenient access to GL's rules and guidelines, as well as a variety of GL tools designed to increase their work efficiency.
