Latvia Authorizes Korean Register Statutory Services
Korean Register (KR), an IACS member classification society, has been authorized as a “recognized organization” of the Latvian government to deliver statutory services.
The authorization means KR is now able to conduct relevant surveys, audits and issue certificates to Latvian flagged ships for SOLAS, MARPOL, ITC, ICLL, ISM Code and MLC. ISPS Code related certification will also be carried out upon acquiring prior approval from the government of Latvia.
This authorization follows similar acceptance by Oman earlier in the year and brings the total number of countries where KR is authorized to carry out ship survey and certification work to 67.
