IRClass Becomes Recognised Organisation for Three More Flag States

Indian Register of Shipping (IRClass), has obtained authorisation to act as Recognised Organisation (RO) to carry out statutory survey, audit and certification on behalf of Nigeria, Oman and Lebanon flag states.

With the latest agreement, IRClass has been approved as a RO by 29 flag registries across the globe.

The Middle East and Africa, among the fastest growing regions in the world, is a key gateway into the region for IRClass, the company said.

Nigeria, Oman and Lebanon all have important maritime links to the Middle East. Nigeria with a strong oil and gas presence, is the largest economy in Africa, while Oman has a history of significant maritime trade.

Together, Nigeria, Oman and Lebanon hold a fleet of approximately 8 million gross tonnage (GT).

“To be approved as a RO for Nigeria, Oman and Lebanon, is a significant step towards expanding IRClass’ services globally, and this reflects the growing acceptance of IRClass by major maritime administrations worldwide. It is indicative of the progress made by IRClass in its efforts to internationalise and explore new markets,” said Vijay Arora, Joint Managing Director of IRClass.

IRClass is in the process of obtaining recognition from several other flag states, the company said.
