ClassNK will perform surveys and issue certificates for Norwegian flagged vessels
Japan-based classification society ClassNK on Tuesday received recognition for Recognised Organisation (RO) from the government of Norway.
The new status grants ClassNK the authority to perform surveys and issue certificates for Norwegian flagged vessels.
Noboru Ueda, chairman of ClassNK, said the agreement would “help to build even stronger ties between the two great maritime nations”.
The new agreement makes Norway the 103rd flag administration to delegate authority for surveys and statutory certificates to ClassNK.
ClassNK has more than 190m gross tonnes on its register at the end of September this year
