Ship owner obligations

What are the LRIT requirements for Ship Owners?

With the introduction of LRIT, ship owners are facing:

  • The obligation to provide a shipboard terminal that is compliant with the SOLAS ChV/19-1 requirements.
  • The necessity to implement conformance testing for shipboard terminals in accordance with  MSC.1/Circ.1307 .

To help ship owners comply with these obligations, CLS offers to conduct LRIT Conformity Tests in accordance with the SOLAS requirements.

How CLS helps ship owners obtain their LRIT conformance test certification
