Leadership, performance and transparency at the heart of IACS' Annual Review.

The International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) has published its inaugural Annual Review, detailing the activities and specific tasks it undertook and completed in 2016.

IACS' technical work, as well as its efforts to improve quality and safety, competence building, and international and inter-industry relations all feature in the Annual Review as do factual summaries of IACS Resolutions that were either new, or were revised, in 2016.

By capturing in one place the full range of IACS work, the Annual Review provides an overview of the very significant contribution that IACS, through its twelve member societies, makes to the maritime industry. It also marks a further step in the Association?s long-standing commitment to transparency and openness in its efforts to advance the cause of safer, cleaner shipping.

Hard copies of the Annual Review are available upon request from the IACS Permanent Secretariat; to read the Annual Review as an online magazine please visit

Notes to Editors:

Dedicated to safe ships and clean seas, the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) makes a unique contribution to maritime safety and regulation through technical support, compliance verification and research and development. More than 90% of the world?s cargo carrying tonnage is covered by the classification design, construction and through-life compliance Rules and standards set by the twelve Member Societies of IACS.
