An easily editable IHM template:
Our simple, tried and tested IHM template is carefully designed against legislative requirements and allows easy compilation and maintenance of the IHM.
LR experts every step of the way:
A specialist from our dedicated IHM Approval Teams then takes care of the desktop approval, and finally a surveyor local to the vessel undertakes onboard verification and certification.
We will issue a statutory certificate against EU SSR (for EU flagged ships) or Statement of Compliance (for non-EU flagged ships). We can also issue a Statement of Compliance against HKC at the same time for no additional charge.
