Liberian Registry and China Classification Society sign technology MoU
(Posted on 21/06/18)
The Liberian Registry has agreed a framework co-operation Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the China Classification Society (CCS) as the latest step in its strategy to collaborate effectively with its long-term key industry stakeholders.
Under the terms of the MoU, the Liberian Registry’s technical competence will be employed to help shipyards and shipowners improve their innovative strategies. The CCS MoU has a particular focus on innovation and technology within the international regulatory framework and maritime sector projects. It is an extension to the governmental Maritime Transport Agreement between China and Liberia which entered into force in February 2016.
The MoU is the most recent agreement between the Liberian Registry and reputable, high-quality stakeholders in the Chinese shipbuilding industry. The Registry has also signed ten MoUs with leading shipyards, shipyard groups and ship design companies in China in order to create a platform for the exchange of market intelligence, innovation and technological development.
A streamlined Ship Newbuild Services facility is also available to Liberian-flag shipowners through dedicated joint industry ship design projects. The intention is to produce quality, innovative ships capable of high performance levels and outstanding Port State Control performance, in compliance with all rules and regulations.
