We celebrated our 60 th anniversary, secondly CCS chaired IACS from July 2016 to June 30, 2017. We plan to speed up the layout of global service network. At present, the Fukuoka survey station of the North-East Asia Center and the Santiago Offce of the American Center are going to open soon; offces in Yosu, Paris, Ghana and St. Petersberg are currently being prepared. In addition, we are planning to establish offces in Teheran, Bangkok, Rio, Chicago, Toronto or Montreal, Durban and other places. In the future, CCS will continue to expand the service area. In March, CCS Greece offcially obtained the certification and authorization of the new EU Marine Equipment Directive 014/90/ EU and became the EU Notified Body in June, CCS was accredited by the Denmark National Accreditation body DANAK to carry out verification of the monitoring, reporting and verification of carbon dioxide emissions from maritime transport. In 2017 we have also signed the »agreement of cooperation on laboratory« with TüV Rheinland. CCS will increase investment in unmanned ships, intelligent ships, cyber security, and new energy application, such as LNG full production chain service. Since there is no apparent opportunity of merger, CCS has no such plan in the short term. For the present, the paramount priority is to strengthen the implementation of the rules and standard by the maritime industry and be cautious to introduce new regulations. New regulations in the future will focus on cyber, intelligence, the impact on ship structure, operation, navigation and environment protection performance due to the use of new energy and other innovative technology. In order to satisfy the demand for unmanned ships by the industry, a corresponding rule and regulation system should be established. In the field of emissions reduction from shipping, the application of new technology to improve energy effciency and study of new green energy/power system application will still be the focus. According to the development trend of the intelligent ship big data in the future, researches will be carried out in comprehensive ship energy effciency management. Challenges for safety include the effective application of risk evaluation, promotion of legislative optimization and focusing on modern intelligent technology application in fields such as cyber security, digitalization, big data, data exchange, drone survey, automatic navigation ships/unmanned ships, etc. 62 HANSA International Maritime Journal – 154. Jahrgang – 2017 – Nr. 8 »Our network will be increased to 100 offces over the next five years« » Korean Register (KR) opened a new ICT (information communications technology) Center to dramatically enhance the application of advanced information and ICT across the maritime and ship classification industries in March 2017. It seeks to address the fact that advanced onshore technologies have been diffcult to adapt for maritime applications because of the poor communications environment at sea and unique attributes of ships. It is initially focused on four areas of advanced technology, maritime big data, e-navigation, ship cyber security and software quality assurance. ICT (Information and Communications Technologies) to the maritime and ship classification industries has developed enormously over the last twenty years and KR’s experts see no sign of this slowing. We have been approved by Germany’s National Accreditation Body (DAkkS) to act as a verification body for EU MRV (Monitoring, Reporting, Verification). In September 2016, KR opened its new facility for Ballast Water Management System (BWMS) testing. The test facility, which already offered the largest capacity for BWMS testing, has been significantly expanded. It is now composed of four units (three of which are new) with one challenge water tank (with a 2,000 m3/h capacity). We have been accepted as the first Independent Laboratory in Asia to be accredited by the United States Coast Guard (USCG IL). More regulations are expected in the fields of cyber security on board ship. These systems must comply with international standards. In addition, whilst technological solutions in the field of maritime autonomous surface ships are being developed and deployed, there is a lack of clarity about the correct application of existing IMO instruments. As well, with respect to GMDSS (Global Maritime Distress and Safety Systems), there have been numerous advances in the use of maritime radio communication for maritime safety, security and environmental protection. But there is also some obsolete GMDSS equipment and systems, or some that have seldom or never been used in practice. We continue to work to increase its market share in the global market and is expanding its third party inspection services in « various industry sectors including the energy sector « to achieve this. Our international network currently stands at 66 offces, and this will be increased to 100 offces over the next few years. KR’s overseas market expansion strategy could be described as »Glocalization«, using local experts to liaise directly with local customers. Lee Jeong-kie, CEO, Korean Register

Schiffstechnik | Ship Technology » In the last twelve months we focussed very much on markets where we are strong: passenger, cruise, ferries, RoRo, yachts. These are the only sectors that see some light. And they will stay strong for the next three to five years. A very important step for us was the signature for Carnival’s newbuildings to be built at Meyer Werft. They are the largest cruise ships with LNG technology. That made us very proud. When cruise vessels are built in Asia, we try to follow our clients. The shipyards there still have to gain experience for production processes and questions concerning regulations. For them, we do consulting services. We see more and more ship owners, who were not used to call us when looking for a classifcation partner. Today, they have real bidding processess and we »»We are strong in sectors of passenger vessels that see some light« Paolo Moretti, COO Marine, RINA Photo: RINA are always invited. This is not for newbuildings, but for services this business is getting more important for us. It will grow in the next three to five years. In addition, we believe we can grow in other areas as well: LNG as fuel is one of these businesses. Another one is the oil/gas sector, which is completely down now. But this is the moment where you can meet potential clients. When the market goes up again, we want to be there and ready for business. In the future we might see several important developments with impacts on our business. One example is 3D printing in manufacturing. It is still at the beginning, but intensifying. Alternative fuels will be more regulated. We hope it will be international and harmonized. Otherwise, it doesn’t help shipowners. Everybody is exploring unmanned vehicles, but I think the first step will be a more telematic approach with data transfer. However, « the use of drones and submersible vehicles for safety and inspections will grow. Competition is going to be tougher and longer. But I don’t see any more big mergers after the one of DNV and GL.
