 Korean Register (KR) – an IACS member classification society –  has announced that it has signed an agreement with the government of Bangladesh to deliver services on behalf of the Bangladeshi flag administration, carrying out vessel surveys and issuing certificates in accordance with international conventions. 

KR is now able to conduct the relevant surveys and audits and to issue certificates to Bangladeshi flagged ships for compliance with SOLAS, MARPOL, ITC, ICLL, and MLC.

KR has been working to obtain the authorization to deliver statutory services to Bangladesh, anticipating an increase in sea-borne transport between Southern Asian countries and Bangladesh, which currently enjoys annual GDP growth of about 6%.

Mr. Lee Jeong-Kie, Chairman and CEO of KR comments:

We are delighted to receive the authorization to deliver statutory services on behalf of the Bangladeshi government. This means that we will be able to provide a wider range of sought after services to our customers in a timely manner, adding value to their businesses in Southern Asia, including those in India and Sri Lanka.

“This new authorization demonstrates our commitment to continually enhancing the quality and range of services we offer to our clients, wherever they are in the world”

KR continues to expand its services to international governments and this latest authorization brings the total number of countries where KR is authorized to carry out ship survey and certification work to seventy-seven (77).
