Lloyd’s Register unveils fast-track type approval

Class society Lloyd’s Register has used the International WorkBoat Show in Miami to launch a new online type approval service that offers a faster route to assurance.

Onsite guidance is provided throughout the process, significantly reducing the time taken to issue type approval. The society noted that the efficiency saving outweighing the additional cost of the premium service.

Graeme Hyde, type approval business development manager, Lloyd’s Register, said: “FastTrack will allow LR to work with clients at their facility, where we will work with their engineers to ensure the correct approval is undertaken. This helps our clients save time and cost and ensures that all the relevant documentation is in place.

“We have further type approval databases and associated systems upgrades coming soon that will make it even easier to issue certificates and make them available for clients online. It will also automate processes, flag up renewals and make it possible to offer our clients an even more proactive service.”

The service is Lloyd’s Register’s most recent investment in LR’s capability and support in its type approval services. The company recently announced the first ever marine type approval system for cyber enabled components.
