Rules Development

In its main role of promoting the safety of ships, ClassNK has always provided the maritime community with the latest technical information and guidelines through the establishment, revision and updating of technical Rules for the construction and survey of ships. These Rules are based on research of advanced technologies and abundant technical data obtained from the examination and analysis of extensive survey experience acquired through more than a century of service. The Society also incorporates frequently changing international convention and code requirements by the IMO, requirements and interpretations by IACS in a prompt and timely manner in these technical Rules so that they may be adequately reflected in the design and construction of safe ships.
