Classification society ClassNK and product testing and certification services provider TÜV Rheinland have entered into a partnership agreement for cybersecurity services.

Both parties have agreed to collaborate in jointly developing and delivering a cybersecurity certification scheme for the maritime industry. The duo will collaborate globally in the field of cybersecurity in order to further ensure the safety of vessels.

Under the agreement, ClassNK will first team up with TÜV Rheinland to work on the cybersecurity guidelines that target onboard software currently being developed by the society.

“Digital transformation is changing the way that business is conducted and offering more opportunities, while cybersecurity is an essential factor to its promotion and adoption in the maritime industry,” Koichi Fujiwara, ClassNK President and CEO, said.

“Through the new partnership, we will do everything possible to overcome the cybersecurity challenges of the industry by combining TÜV Rheinland’s abundant expertise and our society’s accumulated knowledge and experience on management systems for ship operations as well as the structure, machinery and other components of ships themselves,” Fujiwara added.

Earlier, ClassNK and TÜV Rheinland collaborated in wind turbine certification and test and product certification.
