The shipowners / managers enjoy efficient and reliable class entry procedures and reasonable chargeable fees when applying to Hellenic Register of Shipping for class entry.
HRS, having an expanded network of surveyors in Greece and worldwide, assures that delays to ships’ operation would not be normally expected.
Applications for initial classification with HRS of ships or other marine structures, are to be made by the owners/managers by submitting the “APPLICATION FOR CLASS AND STATUTORY CERTIFICATION AND AGREEMENT” form duly filled-in, signed and stamped by the applicant.
HRS class entry requirements depend on whether the vessel was previously classed with a Society member of IACS, EU RO or not.
In case class transfer is considered for a ship previously classed with a Society member of IACS or EU RO, her owners/managers must produce documentary evidence of the surveys held by the previous classification society (losing society) as follows:
1. Updated survey status including recommendations, if any
2. Updated continuous Hull & Machinery lists, if any
3. Copies of class certificates
4. Copies of statutory certificates
5. Copies of documents issued by the flag Administration (Registry, Safe Radio licences, Safe manning etc)
Plans deemed necessary on account of the vessel’s type and service experience are to be requested and submitted.
A program of surveys will be set forth based on the losing society cycle of surveys.
Statutory certificates are to be issued by HRS on behalf of the Flag Administration after relevant authorization following satisfactory surveys in accordance with the International Conventions.
