What is it?
ISO containers, also known as intermodal or box containers, need to be inspected and certified according to international regulations. This common set of safety regulations is set out by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) in the Convention for Safe Containers (1972). The CSC states that an approved classification society is able to carry out the inspection and certification of these containers.
What we do.
As the first classification society, Lloyd's Register also took an early role in the formation of the ISO container standard by issuing "Recommendations for Container Construction and Certification" in 1966.
Since then we have certified millions of ISO containers. Our services include:
- Design reviews
- Owner acceptance
- Technical advice
Added-value services include:
- Document management
- Inspector training (CSC)
- Web-based certification access
When we inspect containers, we use the Lloyd's Register Container Certification Scheme (LRCCS). The LRCCS provides an easy, cost-effective method that makes sure your containers meet all applicable standards and regulations.
We are proud to be members of the Container Owner's Association, an international organisation representing the owners of freight containers. For more information, please visit their website http://www.containerownersassociation.org.
