IRClass Gets USCG’s Nod to Conduct Ship Surveys

Classification society Indian Register of Shipping (IRClass) has received approval to undertake statutory surveys and certification for US and the EU.

IRClass gained recognitions from US Coast Guard as well as European Union close on the heels of its accreditation for EU MRV services from RvA, an EU notified body.

Having received recognition from European Union in August 2016, this recognition from US Coast Guard “is a major step forward signifying its growing global recognition,” the classification society informed.

“This USCG recognition represents a major step forward for IRClass as we strive to join the ranks of truly global classification societies. With its stringent monitoring processes and focus on high performance and quality, USCG sets high standards of safety and quality in the global shipping industry,” Arun Sharma, Executive Chairman, said.

Additionally, the IRClass received the authorisation from European Union Marine Equipment Directive (MarED). The MarED wheelmark has become a quality label for marine equipment on seagoing vessels worldwide as it indicates compliance with the conformity assessment procedures.
