THE ROLE OF LLOYD'S REGISTER OF SHIPPING IN THE IMPLEMENTATION OF INTERNATIONAL CONVENTIONS AND CODES

The organizational structure of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) is first explained. Summaries are then presented of the purposes of the IMO international conventions and of the IMO codes. The mechanism for the implementation of conventions is reviewed, identifying the responsibilities of the flag Administration and of the owner and master. The role of Lloyd's Register in relation to the conventions is then discussed. As a classification society, Lloyd's Register currently acts on behalf of more than 120 governments under the delegation of surveying and certifying duties permitted by the various conventions. In this connection, the various certificates needed by vessels to be in compliance with the Conventions are listed and the purpose of each is given. The duties preformed by Lloyd's to determine eligibility for each type of certification are noted.
