As a classification society, MSR is an essential link in the overall safety chain of the marine industry.
Our classification services are designed to ensure that your vessel is maintained in accordance with applicable MSR Rules and recognized standards, enabling you to manage your ship to its full potential, while minimizing risks to life, property and the environment.
Many ships are designed and constructed to comply with other Rules and it is possible to transfer your vessel to MSR at any point during its lifetime.
If your vessel is presently under Class by another recognized Class Society, we may continue the same cycle of classification.
We also offer other supporting services, such as our Machinery Planned Maintenance Scheme, which enable you to align the classification process with your existing maintenance and inspection programs.
Ship surveys program and schedule will be set forth based on the outcome of the first document review results, plus ship's existing periodical cycle of surveys.
Statutory certificates are to be issued by MSR on behalf of the Flag Administration, following satisfactory completion of the applicable technical surveys, in accordance with the International Conventions and / or national applicable legisation.
New building vessels
The classification of new buildings is carried out under follow-up surveys during construction, which include examination and approval of plans and drawings, approval of materials and equipment to be used and trials as required.
Vessels in operation
The purpose of MSR support to vessels in operation is to ensure the safety of life, property and environment, while ensuring a maximum rate or return of vessels.
We are recognized for our in-depth technical competence, proactive solutions and an excellent service attitude. This in turn ensures both a safe operation and a minimum of costs and delays to your shipping operations.
