TEHRAN, IranClassNK has re-opened its office in Tehran and signed or approved agreements with the Iranian Classification Society (ICS), Ports and Maritime Organization (PMO), and Ministry of Roads & Urban Development of Iran.

The office, originally opened in December 2009, was closed three years later, but the company has decided to return following the relaxation of sanctions against Iran.

Its new accord with ICS sets out a framework for surveys and certifications for NK/ICS dual-classed ships, while the agreement with PMO – due to be finalized – will allow ClassNK to perform statutory surveys and certifications on Iranian-flagged vessels in cooperation with Port & Flag State Control officers.
