Japan: ClassNK Chairman Noboru Ueda Becomes ACS Chairman

Leading classification society ClassNK has announced that ClassNK Chairman and President Noboru Ueda assumed the role of Chairman of the Association of Asian Classification Societies (ACS) on 1 January 2014.

ACS is an organization of six Asia-based classification societies established to share technical knowledge and insights in order to improve safety at sea and better protect the marine environment. With a membership comprised of Biro Klasifikasi Indonesia (BKI), China Classification Society (CCS), Indian Register of Shipping (IRS), Korean Register of Shipping (KR), Vietnam Register (VR) and ClassNK, ACS began operating as a formal organization in 2010, building on a history of nearly two decades of informal meetings and cooperation between its members.
