Japan’s classification society ClassNK has opened new survey offices in India’s Kandla and Spain’s Valencia in a move to improve the efficiency of its ship surveys and audits in those areas.

The new offices started operations on 1 October 2020.

“Both offices are located in one of the most well-known port cities in each country. In recent years, the number of surveys and audits required in the northwest part of India and southern part of Spain has been increasing,” ClassNK stated.

The Japanese class society said it aims to continue improving its worldwide survey offices network in order to meet its clients’ requests and provide timely and high-quality services.
