Canadians Sign Agreement with Lloyd's Register


The Canadian Government has signed a landmark agreement with Lloyd's Register (LR), authorising LR to carry out a wide range of statutory surveys on Canadian ships on its behalf. This new agreement allows LR to issue safety equipment and safety construction certificates on behalf of the Canadian Government now - this is in addition to Load Line, Marpol and ISM certification, which LR has previously been authorised to issue.

In addition, authorisation for plan appraisal, stability approval, hull, machinery, lifting appliance and crew accommodation inspections has also been delegated to LR. Bud Streeter, Director General Marine Safety, Canadian Government, said: "This agreement with Lloyd's Register of Shipping is a positive step which provides the industry with greater flexibility in complying with regulatory requirements, should they choose this option, while at the same time allowing Transport Canada Marine Safety to focus its resources on those vessels and operators that pose a higher risk to safety or the environment. The expanded delegation to Lloyd's Register of Shipping of plan review and safety inspections, and subsequent vessel certification, will enhance the working relationship between our two organisations and allow both to contribute to a more effective safety regime here in Canada."

Peter Brock, president of LR North America said: "We are particularly pleased to be the first classification society to gain this extended approval from the Canadian Government. LR has a long and proud tradition of working with the Canadian Shipping Industry and we look forward to furthering this relationship with the opportunity that delegation now presents."
