The Maritime Administration of Malaysia has recently authorised IRS to act as a ‘Recognised Security Organisation’ (RSO) towards verification and approval of ship security plan and issuance/ endorsement of International Ship Security Certificates (ISPS) for ships operating under Malaysian Flag Administration. The new recognition will now allow IRClass to provide complete statutory certification to Malaysian registered ships, thus improving our 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 recognized 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.
