"K" Line's "Ship Planning Group" Acquires ISO9001 Accreditation
for Quality Control

Together with the New Ship and Hull Group of "K" Line Ship Management Co., Ltd., "K" Line's Ship Planning Group has acquired accreditation under ISO9001, the international quality-control standard, for its new shipbuilding planning, design and development, determination of shipbuilding specifications, procedures for approval of approved drawings after shipbuilding-contracts, and performing supervisory activities during shipbuilding from the Norwegian shipping classification society Det Norske Veritas (DNV).

To contribute to our corporate principles of "marine safety" and "environmental preservation," we have incorporated techniques required by the widely internationally-recognized ISO9001 standard in a review of our business practices spanning the entire scope of shipbuilding from the initial shipbuilding planning stage to completion of construction aimed at realizing highly cost-competitive shipbuilding while paying close attention to the performance, quality and specifications required by customers.

Taking advantage of the opportunity afforded us by this accreditation, the "K" Line Group will focus its efforts on contributing to the preservation of the environment and meeting the needs of society through the provision of environment-friendly energy-conserving ships capable of meeting the ever-growing demand for high standards of safety and low environmental impact.
