Lloyd’s Register has been involved in the creation of standards for containers since the early days of global shipping.
With more than 250 years of classifying ships, it was only logical that the technical expertise and safety focus of Lloyd’s Register should be applied to the containers the vessels were carrying. First published in 1966, the LRCCS has been the benchmark for technical procedures.
The LRCCS combines the three main service areas of intermodal equipment for both new construction and in-service inspection:
- CSC Containers
- Offshore containers and equipment
- Tanks for the transport of dangerous goods
Through the LRCCS, we can provide assurance that equipment inspected according to its procedures and rules is safe and certified correctly to the many regulations and standards that govern intermodal equipment. The goal of LRCCS is to present these requirements in a clear and concise set of rules for easy reference for both Lloyd’s Register and its clients.

We are making those procedures public to help container owners and end-users maintain their containers in good, safe working order.
