Malaysian Flag approves IRClass as Recognised Security Organisation


shutterstock_153090377The Maritime Administration of Malaysia has authorised IRClass to act as a ‘Recognised Security Organisation’ (RSO) towards verification and approval of ship security plans and issuance/ endorsement of International Ship Security Certificates (ISPS) for ships operating under Malaysian Flag Administration.
The latest recognition will now allow IRClass to provide complete statutory certification to Malaysian registered ships, thus improving the Maritime Administration of Malaysia’s services to the Malaysian ship owners. Malaysia is one of the key flag administrations in the South East Asian region.
Besides Malaysia, IRClass is a recognised Security Organization for 25 other Flag Administrations across the world, which together account for approximately 50% of total international tonnage. This includes the Indian and Sri Lankan flags for which IRClass is the RSO for port facilities as well.
