Lloyd's Register (LR) is the world's premier ship classification society, founded in 1760. The concept of 'ship classification' originated in the eighteenth century, when the practice began of awarding different classes to ships.
LR not only serves the shipping industry but provides offshore and industrial advisory and inspection services.
LR's impartiality and integrity stem from its complete financial, commercial and political independence.
LR operates from more than 200 exclusively staffed offices worldwide, with 4,500 technical and administrative staff undertaking work for LR and on behalf of 135 national administrations.
