When it comes to classification services, LHR strives to minimise risks for your vessels and ensure their safe management and operation.

Upon document and drawing review, and the completion of relevant surveys to ensure compliance with LHR Rules, class is assigned to a vessel in operation.

In order to maintain the class for a ship in operation, LHR carries out periodic surveys (renewal, intermediate, annual, bottom, in-water, special etc.).

LHR classification and certification services are strictly provided in accordance with the quality system requirements to ensure a high level of survey quality and control the entire process of compliance.
