Korean Register (KR) - an IACS member classification society – is now authorized as a Recognized Organization (RO) by the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure to perform statutory services for flagged vessels.
Separately, KR has also been authorized to provide similar services for flagged vessels on behalf of the government of Togo. KR is now able to conduct surveys and audits and issue certificates to the flagged ships from these two countries for SOLAS and MARPOL.
KR continues to expand its statutory services on behalf of flag administrations. These latest authorizations demonstrate that KR’s technical competence is being recognized and valued across the world and that KR is regarded as a reliable, trusted partner providing statutory services to international shipping administrations.
The two new authorizations bring the total number of countries where KR is authorized to carry out ship survey and certification work to 71. This includes an increasing coverage in Europe where they are able to provide services in Denmark, Latvia, Luxembourg, Spain, and now Germany.
