Classification with Lloyd’s Register means adding value to your operations. The hallmark of our approach to this, and all our other services, is a commitment to being a responsive long-term service provider. Our objective is to help you safely manage your ships and offshore assets to their full potential, maintain operational effectiveness and minimise risk to life, property and the environment. We will work closely with you to achieve these mutually beneficial goals.
What we offer
To achieve your goals, you need to manage risk with confidence. Our classification service sets out to provide that increased confidence by helping identify risks associated with your operations through the direct application of our classification Rules. Where risks are identified, local surveyors are on the spot to apply their knowledge, experience and skills to provide a range of practical solutions. They will advise your local staff on possible alternatives and explain their full implications, and will work closely with them to come to an informed decision.
Our classification surveys not only provide timely identification of potential problems, but also give you confidence in the condition of your ship or offshore asset. Classing with LR is a positive step towards helping you get the most from your ship or asset during its service life.
What are the benefits?
We believe that our approach to classification is more responsive than the traditional prescriptive approach. Applying our market leading knowledge gained over many years, we can provide a robust framework for a risk-based approach to managing your fleet within the classification context. This enables you to incorporate effective risk management into your day-to-day business.
Our unparalleled experience and expertise in this highly specialised area means we are uniquely positioned to help you maximise the availability of your ship or asset.
Why choose LR?
By listening to you, by talking with you and by understanding your business. Our qualified, experienced surveyors can ensure full compliance with the Rules through a flexible approach to equivalent alternative solutions. Our aim is to be timely as well as flexible – our surveyors are able to respond day or night, and our global coverage means that we are available when and where you need us most.
In addition, we provide a range of supporting services that can be used to create tailor-made solutions to suit your business needs.
