Tokyo – In response to the casualty of “MOL COMFORT” which occurred on 17 June  2013, ClassNK established the Investigative Panel on Large Container Ship Safety,  comprised of leading experts from shipbuilders, shipowners and academic  institutions, to carry out the following course of action:

(1) Investigate the possibility of casualty occurrence
(2) Consider and examine safety of large container ship structure

The Panel has met six times so far over the course of its investigation, and is  currently consolidating its findings and observations into a report, which is  scheduled to be released simultaneously in both English and Japanese on the  ClassNK website (www.classnk.com) by the end of September.

A further press release will be distributed upon publication of the report.
