Indian Registry Recognized by Liberia

Wednesday, June 08, 2011

 The Liberian Registry has accorded the status of Recognised Organization to the classification society IRS (Indian Register of Shipping), to act on behalf of vessels operating under the flag of Liberia.

 
Captain J C Anand, Chairman of IRS, says, “This recognition by Liberia is a matter of great significance and prestige to IRS, coming as it does from one of the world’s leading flag states, which has an enviable reputation for quality and service and an outstanding safety record. The Liberian Registry and IRS look forward to working together so that IRS can discharge its delegated authority, in accordance with the registry’s established high standards.”
 
Scott Bergeron, Chief Operating Officer of the Liberian International Ship & Corporate Registry (LISCR), the US-based managers of the Liberian Registry, says, “The Liberian Registry adopts a proactive approach to the service which it provides to the record numbers of ships which fly the Liberian flag. This involves using our own highly trained staff to carry out audits, inspections and certification and, where appropriate, delegating authority for those activities to Recognised Organisations which we know and trust. Subsequent to IRS’s admission to IACS as a full member, we conducted our own audit of IRS’s systems and procedures and are satisfied with their competence and capability to provide statutory services in accordance with Liberia’s robust standards.
 
“India is a global economic power which generates increasing demand for shipping. It is a very important market for the Liberian Registry. As we increase our market share in India, we have great confidence in IRS’s ability to work alongside us to help maintain the quality of our fleet to the highest standards and beyond.”
