Korean Register (KR) – an IACS member classification society – announces that it has signed an MOU governing the delegation of statutory certification services for vessels registered in the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg. KR is now fully authorized by the Government of Luxembourg to deliver “statutory services” and is Luxembourg’s 7th Recognized Organization (RO).
