Who we are
We started out in 1760 as a marine classification society. Today, we’re one of the world’s leading providers of professional services for engineering and technology – improving safety and increasing the performance of critical infrastructures for clients in over 75 countries worldwide.
The profits we generate fund the Lloyd’s Register Foundation, a charity which supports engineering-related research, education and public engagement around everything we do. All of this helps us stand by the purpose that drives us every single day: Working together for a safer world.
In a world of increasing complexity – overloaded with data and opinion – we know that our clients need more than technology to succeed. They need an experienced hand. A partner to listen, cut through the noise and focus on what really matters to them and their customers. Our engineers and technical experts are dedicated to assurance. That means a commitment to embracing new technology and a deep rooted desire to drive better performance. So we consider our customer’s needs with diligence and empathy, then use our expertise and over 250 years’ experience to deliver the smart solution for everyone.
After all, there are some things technology can’t replace.

Deep technical and industry knowledge
We’re expert in not only understanding the potential in cutting-edge ideas, but applying this pragmatically in ways which guarantee impact today and in the long-term.
Dedication to assurance
We explore every problem thoroughly with exact, analytical precision. We leave no stone unturned and no questions unanswered, to draw accurate conclusions.
We’re committed to doing things the right way to reach the highest standards and best outcomes for all, giving our clients confidence in our decisions every time.
Understanding and empathy
We take time to understand the needs and unique circumstances of our clients and their businesses, to act with judgement, sensitivity and care.
We have evolved into the 21st century model for social business – not only funding the Foundation through our profits, but also discharging some of the Foundation’s charitable objectives through our work in assuring the safety of critical infrastructure worldwide.
