About Lloyd`s Register

Lloyd`s Register is an independent risk management organisation providing risk assessment and risk mitigation solutions and management systems certification around the world. Founded in 1760 to examine merchant ships and `classify` them according to their condition, today the organisation`s expertise and activities extend far wider than the shipping field. In addition to its marine activities, it has operations covering management systems, land-based industries, railways, and oil and gas. The Lloyd`s Register Group has more than 200 offices and over 5000 employees.

Through its constitution, Lloyd`s Register is directed `to secure, for the benefit of the community, high technical standards of design, manufacture, construction, maintenance, operation, and performance, for the purpose of enhancing the safety of life and property both at sea and on land`

Since 1764, Lloyd`s Register has published it annual Register of Ships (sometimes also called Lloyd`s Registers), and this is still the foremost source of information on the world merchant fleet, listing details of every commercial ship from any country over 100gt. It also publishes other directories, shipping statistics and technical `rules` for constructing vessels, and several sources are available online.
