The Korean Register (KR), an IACS member classification society, announced that it has again donated its award winning KR-CON software to students at the World Maritime University (WMU).

KR-CON is an international database program which contains the full up-to-date texts of all IMO Conventions, Codes, Resolutions and Circulars in a single USB memory stick. It enables users to identify regulations relevant to a specific task and helps ensure all IMO requirements are applied correctly. KR-CON is currently being used by surveyors, port state control inspectors, shipping companies, shipyards and design houses in more than 30 countries across the world. It is available in USB format and from the KR website where all new regulations are immediately updated. The value of software donated is approximately $250,000.

KR has been donating its software to WMU since 2012 and, this year, students and the faculty were given access to the very latest version of KR-CON from USB devices and the new mobile app which is due to be released in April.

Commenting on the donation, Dr. Chon Young-kee, Chairman & CEO of Korean Register said, “ We are very happy to support the World Maritime University again this year and we hope that our software will be useful to the students as they continue their studies.”

Mr. Neil Bellefontaine, WMU Vice President Academic, replied, “We sincerely appreciate the generosity of KR for donating its prestigious KR-CON software for the third consecutive year. It will contribute greatly to the studies of our students and our faculty.”

KR also donates its software to a number of other international and domestic maritime universities.
