Korean Register of Shipping
Established in 1960 as a not-for-profit ship classification society, Korean Register of Shipping (KR) has been promoting safe ships and clean oceans by continually developing technology and human resources pertaining to shipping, shipbuilding and other industrial services.
KR became a member of the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) in 1988, and in 1990, became listed in the Institute Classification Clause (ICC) of London Underwriters. The acquisition of these international standards of confidence is an indication of KR's solid underpinning and outstanding global recognition of KR as a leading international ship classification society.
With more than 2,844 ships totalling 60 million GRT in its registry, KR is presently authorized by 65 national administrations to carry out statutory services on their behalf. With a network of 65 exclusive offices stations at major international ports around the globe, KR delivers top quality technical service anytime, anywhere around the world.
KR also invests intensively in the research development sector to promote more effective classification Rules. The continual expansion of its survey network and the continual improvement of its services through training and education ensure that KR customers have access to the service of the highest standard.
