Exploring Materials, Equipment and Component certification with LR


Give your customers confidence in your product quality and production standards with LR’s Manufacturer Approval certification.

Surveyed in accordance with the Rules for the Manufacture, Testing and Certification of Materials and supporting procedures, all approved works are added to the LR Approved Manufacturers list by material and component type, helping to reinforce your brand reputation and expand your presence in the global marine market.

Why a Material Manufacturer Approval??

From the smallest bolt to larger fabrications, we help provide confidence that these parts form a safe, reliable system. We start at the manufacturing process, continue through to the welders and also help component manufacturers meet the correct standards.

You can access approvals by visiting the LR Marine & Offshore Approvals portal. As all approved works are included in the LR Approved Manufacturers list, a Manufacturer Approval can help you to:

  • Reinforce your brand reputation
  • Expand your presence in the global market
