KR-CON v.21 solution released for accessing latest IMO regulations


Korean Register (KR) has released the latest updated version of KR-CON (v.21), its comprehensive digital database of almost all the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) instruments.

With continued success since its launch in 2000, KR-CON has been regularly updated to ensure that the database program contains the latest IMO instruments. Users can easily access the IMO documents in the program, and quickly find relevant regulations for a specific vessel. This is one of the reasons why the program has been particularly valued and widely used by flag administrations and maritime companies worldwide.

In the 21st version of KR-CON, the user interface (UI) design of the mobile application and the icon design of the KR-CON website have changed to improve customers’ understanding of the functions in the program.

Additionally, a new function has been added that allows the user to easily locate previously downloaded PDF files by maintaining a download history within the mobile application.

LEE Jungkun, the General Manager of KR’s Convention and Legislation Service Team said,
“We have reorganized the UI of the 21st version of KR-CON to make the user environment more intuitive and improve user convenience. We will continuously work to advance the program to meet customers’ needs and requirements, and make it even more user-friendly.”

The new KR-CON includes the contents of the 32nd Assembly of the IMO held in 2021 and 2022, as well as the amendments of SOLAS and MARPOL adopted by the 106th Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) and the 78th Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC). The database will be continuously updated to reflect any revised documents adopted in the future.

KR-CON is available via the website, mobile application, USB and a web installation version for offline use. Further details can be found on KR’s main website ( and KR-CON website (
