Safer and Cleaner Shipping

Dedicated to safe ships and clean seas, 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. 



The Coronavirus (COVID19) pandemic is having a significant impact on the maritime sector with companies, governments and regulatory bodies having to take rapid and extra-ordinary measures to ensure the maritime industry is able to continue functioning in as smooth and efficient a manner as possible. IACS Members understand and share the concerns of their stakeholders regarding the impact of the outbreak of COVID-19 on shipping. IACS is fully committed to supporting the industry and flag States to identify and assess measures that can be implemented to facilitate business continuity.
