Lloyd’s Register helps to protect life and property and supports education and engineering-related research.
We do this through a commercial entity, LR, a leading provider of engineering-centric, global professional services that improve the safety and performance of complex, critical infrastructure for our clients and for society. And through a charitable arm, the Lloyd’s Register Foundation, which through its network is able to provide unbiased world-expert research and education in science and engineering.
Founded in 1760 as a marine classification society, LR now operates across multiple industry sectors, with some 8,000 employees operating in 78 countries and headquartered in London, UK.
