In order to support this growing market and ensure the safety of the inland waterway fleet, ClassNK developed new Rules and Guidance for the Survey and Construction of Inland Waterway Ships to specify new requirements for the survey and construction of ships that navigate inland waterways, such as barges, tugs, and pushers. The requirements come into effect as of 17 September 2014, requiring all inland waterway ships registered with ClassNK to dhere to the new rules and guidance. The Rules and Guidance for the Survey and Construction of Inland Waterway Ships are available free of charge via ClassNK’s website www.classnk.com for those who have registered for the ClassNK “My Page” service.
