…….About

Nippon Kaiji Kyokai, known as ClassNK or NK, is a ship classification society.
It is what is known under Japanese law as a public service foundation and in its Act of Endowment, its ultimate goal is expressed as: “to contribute to the development of maritime service for the protection of human life and property at sea”. Environmental protection has also become an increasingly major concern.

This sentiment has been formally developed into the NK Mission which is:

ClassNK is dedicated to ensuring the safety of life and property at sea, and the prevention of pollution of the marine environment.
To achieve this mission ClassNK will: Focus on delivering the highest quality classification services, by the highest quality personnel, while maintaining its totally independent third party, non-profit status.
Focus on the development of relevant Rules,procedures and guidance, and maintain and develop its commitment to scientific and technological research and development.
Maintain and develop its global operations in line with the needs of those using its services.

ClassNK has earned an outstanding reputation for its long-standing dedication to safeguarding life and property at sea and preventing marine pollution through the establishment of universally recognized standards for the design, construction and maintenance of ships and other marine structures.

The principal work of the Society’s expert technical staff is to undertake surveys to ensure that the rules which it has developed are applied to new buildings and existing ships to ensure their safety. The rules cover not only hull structures, but also propulsion systems, electronic systems, safety equipment, cargo handling gear, and various other areas. ClassNK’s surveyors work in shipbuilding and repair yards and at ports across the world, wherever they may be called upon to examine the condition of a ship.

The Head Office is located in Tokyo and in Chiba, Japan, and there are branch offices at the major Japanese ports and overseas offices throughout the world. (see Contact us) As of December 2009, the Society had 7,188 ships over 160 million g.t. under class. This figure represents approximately 20 percent of the world merchant fleet currently under class.
