The European Commission has adopted a decision granting recognition to the Indian Register of Shipping (IRClass) which allows this classification society access to European markets.
EC granted recognition to IRClass in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 391/2009 on common rules and standards for ship inspection and survey organizations.
This recognition confirms IRClass meeting the EU requirements and having a “performant and well-established quality system in place, certified as compliant with relevant statutory and industry standards, currently implemented throughout the organization,” IRClass said.
IRClass is an independent ship classification society providing ship classification and certification as well as technical inspection services. IRClass is a member of the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS).
