International Register of Shipping (IRS) has opened an office in Singapore. The office will be designated as a regional centre for the classification society and will offer a wide range of services.
“Singapore is one the busiest ports in the world and with a free market economy and political stability, many shipping companies are making this their home,” said Julian Padilla, Chairman of the Board of International Register of Shipping. “We intend to be the preferred service provider to these companies. With the opening of our Singapore office, we will be closer to ship operators who can benefit from our technical consulting services, including preparation/submittal/approval of the SOPEP, PCSOPEP, Garbage Plan, Ship Security Plan, Safety Management System, Loading Manual, Trim & Stability booklet, and so on.”
The office is staffed by marine engineers, naval architects, master mariners, marine oil and gas specialists, marine risk and security specialists, oil terminal specialists and quality/environment/safety and safety lead auditors.
