Leading Classification Society ClassNK is launching a new service titled “Innovation Endorsement” for certifying innovative technology.
In February 2020, the Society announced the “ClassNK Digital Grand Design 2030” 1 which  shows its future vision for the digital society of 2030, aiming to support the evolution of ocean-related business by meeting the new needs of clients brought about by digital technology and data distribution, and contribute to the further improvement of safety.
The Digital Grand Design cites three fundamental policies, with one of them being to “diversify certification services and expand their scope”. The “Innovation Endorsement” certification service which targets innovative digital technology is being launched in line with this policy.
With the development of information technology, attempts to share and utilize data from ships have already begun, and many innovative technologies have emerged. By proactively providing certification services for these innovations and promoting their spread and development, ClassNK strives to support the preservation of the marine environment, further improve safety at sea, and support the sustainable development referred to in the SDGs.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Toshiro Arima Corporate Officer, General Manager of Digital Transformation Center said “Up until now, we have carried out certifications in accordance with the mandatory requirements of international conventions and of our rules. On the other hand, it is likely that a clear evaluation standard has yet to be established for innovative technologies, which can occasionally hinder their diffusion. Accordingly, “Innovation Endorsement” will provide certification services regardless of existing standards based on the policies of “speed-focused” and “establishing evaluation criteria in cooperation with front runners”. In cooperation with technical front-runners, we will continue establishing appropriate evaluation criteria and providing prompt certification services.”
