"K" LINE Group ready for 2002 Amendments to SOLAS and ISPS Code

2002 Amendments to SOLAS and ISPS Code took effect on July 1. 2004. Both are aimed to provide greater security and safety as well as prevent threats by terrorists, etc. through mutual cooperation between ships and port facilities.

The "K" LINE Group commenced early last year to make preparations for appropriate compliance in response to these new amendments to SOLAS and ISPS Code. All ships operated by the Group are now successfully prepared for acquiring ISSC and CSR, etc. and have met the requirements of both SOLAS and ISPS.

In this regard, everyone concerned can be fully assured that we will continue to make further efforts to totally and satisfactorily comply with all provisions of both the ISM Code as well as the ISPS Code
